Poet, Writer, and Keynote Speaker
Elizabeth Zion is a 19-year-old writer, poet and keynote speaker from Dublin, Ireland. She is a human rights advocate using poetry to shine light on contemporary social issues as well as a personal outlet for emotion. She was nominated to serve on UNICEF’s Global Youth Advisory Board to urge government leaders to commit to concrete action in post-Covid.
She has written articles on various human rights issues such as a homelessness, immigration and child poverty for the Irish Times and The Journal . Recently she was published in the ‘What You Need To Know About Me’ anthology; a powerful new anthology that centers on the immigration narratives of young people. As part of her advocacy she was opportune to write and perform a TED Talk on the topic of family reunification which garnered over 1.75 million views.
She was selected to join a community of young people on the Common Futures Conversations platform.
