Deepi Virk was born in the UK in 1994 to Indian parents, but now lives in the Republic of Ireland. From an early age, he was exposed to racial discrimination and poverty, and this has had a lasting impact on him. Through his experiences, Deepi has learned valuable lessons about the world, and how to change it. His motivation is his need to change the world for the better, and at the age of 14, he realised that the system simply doesn’t work. He is currently in his last year of school, and hopes to pursue a degree in PPES (Philosophy, Politics, Economics and Sociology) at Trinity College, Dublin.
