MY KEY ISSUES ARE:

  • Increase in homelessness.

  • Decrease the voting age limit.

  • Increase age for free healthcare.

Member Profile:

I want to be a Welsh Youth Parliament Member because many people talk about things that should change but struggle to do anything about it. I want to gather opinions from people who feel that they are unable to have a voice and speak on their behalf in Parliament. There are many people who are too shy, embarrassed or not bothered to say any of their ideas but I want to empower them  by speaking for them.

I will consult with young people in my area by listening to them carefully, gathering their ideas and representing them in Parliament. I will reassure the young people that their voices will definitely be heard!

Constituents should vote for me because I will work hard and I am passionate about getting their voices heard and their rights enforced.

I am organised, hard working, a good speaker and a strong listener. I think I will make  a good Welsh Youth Parliament Member because I was a member of the School Council for 2 years. I was also a Welsh Ambassador for a year. I participate in charity work with my family, which has included participating in 5k walks and a 12k bike ride.
