Chris Lyttle MLA said: “I would like to congratulate Koulla on her appointment as the next Commissioner for Children and Young People.
“I have worked with Koulla in her current position in Include Youth and have seen first-hand her passion for promoting the views and thoughts of our young people. I know she will be an outstanding Commissioner who will be dedicated to listening to our children and young people and making sure that the Executive takes account of their needs and desires. I hope she will work with the Assembly Group on Children and Young People as we continue to work on the issues that affect them.
“I look forward to working with her when she takes up her new role and would like to wish her every success.”
