Candidate profile:

Hi, I am Maria, I am 15 and from Swansea and I want to be your youth parliament representative.  

I want to be a member of the Welsh Youth Parliament because I want the opportunity to make a difference in young people’s lives and to meet other people who want to make a change and who are curious about how welsh politics works.

You should vote for me because I am extremely passionate and enthusiastic with everything I am involved with. I believe everyone deserves a voice and I can give it to you. I think I would be a good fit for this position because I am confident and not afraid to speak my mind.

I would engage with the young people in my constituency through social media because we all use it and I think it would be a good way to encourage young people who wouldn’t usually get involved to get their voices heard.

I have experience in representing my class in my school council and have participated in shadow elections in school as well, so I am aware of the responsibilities linked with such a position and will rise to the challenges it throws at me.
