Jacques Marquis


Standing for:

Cardiff West

My key issues are:

  • Create greater opportunities for students

  • Online exam stress support network

  • Equal education regardless of background

Candidate profile:

According to Albert Einstein: ‘Everybody is a genius. But If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid’. Education can overcome all barriers we have with each other and is the guiding principle to all aspects of our lives.

I believe that everyone deserves the right to education and will work to ensure that all people of all backgrounds receive the greatest possible opportunities in their educational journeys. I am confident that I have what it takes to bring about a change and realise the goals I have set, however, it is your confidence in me which will allow these changes to take place.

I have been a longstanding advocate in education involving being an active student parliament member since 2013 specialising in the education sector, being appointed Deputy Head Boy and winning a scholarship at St Davids College for my contribution to community.

I feel that I am a strong candidate for the Welsh Youth Parliament as I have a substantial amount of prior experience and will strive to achieve these goals by reaching out, connecting and making a difference with young people in Cardiff.
