Young British Esperantists (Junularo Esperantista Brita – JEB) is an association that promotes Esperanto among young people in the UK. We arrange regular events around the country, and membership is free!
President: Tyron Surmon
Tyron is 20 years old, and from Kent. He first started learning Esperanto 3 years ago with the Duolingo course, and first attended an Esperanto event in the summer of 2017. His main aim is to try and make sure all young Esperantists in Britain are able to get involved in JEB and its activities. Outside of the world of Esperanto, he studies History and Politics at the University of Oxford, and is a big fan of playing Ultimate Frisbee.
Vice-president: Ariel Bonkorpa
Ariel is a 26 years old, originally from Bath. She has been involved in Esperanto for almost nine years now, and works as a teacher of English and Esperanto, and as a writer. She contributes to the blog Egalecen, about social justice and feminism in Esperanto, and also makes very silly videoblogs in Esperanto. She’s committed to making JEB events fun and accessible, and hopes to see you at one in the near future!
