Candidate profile:

Hi! I'm Charlotte, I'm fifteen, and I'd love to be a member of the Welsh Youth Parliament. It would be great to be a part of this as it is an amazing opportunity and I'd like to help as many people as possible to get their voices heard.

It would also be nice to share and listen to opinions and ideas with my peers. To connect with others I would use social media, as it is an easy way to communicate with and represent thousands of people in the area.

You should vote for me because I have lots of skills in communication and helping others, as I have been volunteering as a gymnastics coach for three years and was recently offered a job coaching at my gymnastics club.

I've also been doing Girlguiding for nine years, and completed the Baden-Powell challenge, so I've gained lots of skills which will help me within the Youth Parliament.

I have chosen these topics as they are topics I am particularly passionate about and would love to help make change surrounding, especially education on mental health, which is very important and currently isn't highlighted very deeply in schools. Thank you for reading!!
