Generation 2015 profiles: Nan Pancoast

I'm 22 but still feeling (and looking) 16, and living in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

I moved here back in September after graduating in ssychology from a Scottish university hoping to look for a job or funding and experience for a postgraduate course.

I'm originally from London and I come from a Chinese/Vietnamese migrant family and was adopted into an American/Japanese family.

I feel strongly about educating the public about mental health issues, re-organising the social care system, encouraging progress in animal welfare, eradicating racism and inequality, and eating good food.
