Standing for:

Torfaen

My key issues are:

  • Mental health

  • Young carers

  • Help for substance abuse/alcohol

Candidate profile:

Being in the Welsh Youth Parliament means I can allow young people to have their voices heard.

I'd love to be able to make a difference in my community/Wales so it's a better environment for everyone living here. The key issues I have picked are real issues that young people face and they need to be tackled as efficiently as possible.

My top three skills are that I'm confident, I'm good with teamwork and I work well under pressure. I face two out of three of my key issues, therefore, I know what it's like for a young person to deal with these issues. I've spoken to Parliament previously about the issues that young carers face.

To make sure the voices in Torfean are heard, I will go around youth groups and consult young people myself about their issues and listen to the views of young people within these groups and then take their voices seriously to then bring them up when I'm given the opportunity to.

You should vote me because I know what it's like to face these issues, I care about the views of young people and I want Wales/Torfean to change for the better.
