Candidate profile:

My name is Rio Galea and I am currently in Year 8 at Cardinal Newman School. I live in Treharris, Merthyr Tydfil. I enjoy horse riding, attending girl guides and playing the saxophone.

I would very much like to be a Welsh Youth Parliament candidate. I want to make a positive difference to young people’s lives.

If I was elected I would consult with young people in my area by contacting Head Teachers of local comprehensive schools and handing out questionnaires to get young people’s views and concerns.

I would also create posters with information and my email address so young people could contact me. I would take these posters to schools, youth clubs and community centres.

I am a confident public speaker, I have just started going to a Debate Club. I am hard working and passionate about the issues that affect children and young people.  I am responsible and mature and would ensure that I give 100% to the role.
