Arwen Skinner


Standing for:

Carmarthen East and Dinefwr

My key issues are:

  • Media

  • Equal opportunities

  • Energy conservation

Candidate profile:

My name is Arwen and I would like to be a member of the Welsh Youth Parliament as I feel it would be an honour to represent the young people of Carmarthenshire .

An issue affecting our future is global warming, we need to drive forward the use of green technologies and energy conservation. I feel strongly about media representation and the unrealistic and potentially harmful societal expectations.

I want to give young people equal opportunities to voice their opinions about our society now and in the future using social media to enable informed debate.

Our world is rapidly changing, and the future belongs to young people. We need fresh eyes, new ideas and better communication to ensure have the best opportunities for all. Together we can build a new Wales which will serve children for generations.

I am confident that I am the right person to achieve these goals, having had opportunities in my studies and extra-curricular activities to develop my leadership and interpersonal skill.

My role as assistant Kayak coach has developed my communication and motivation skill in both English and Welsh, being a member of the School Council has taught me the importance of consultation and democracy.
