Chrisann was born in Jamaica and brought to the UK when she was 8 years old. Initially unable to take up her place at university due to her immigration status, she won a full scholarship to study Law at London School of Economics (LSE). In 2014, Chrisann founded Let Us Learn to raise awareness of the issue and to assist the many young people who were still ‘young, gifted and blocked’. Chrisann completed her studies in May 2017 and now works part time on the campaign and is also seconded to the Mayor’s office.
She believes in the importance of good mentors: “I benefited from having someone senior as a mentor and I know how that transforms young people’s chances in life. I am so excited to join the Young Leaders Panel and be part of Migrant Leaders.”
