Member Profile:

When hearing about this position I was extremely enthusiastic and excited to have a chance to represent the views of young people in my local area.My home town is Merthyr Tydfil, though I am proud to attend Ysgol Gyfun Rhydywaun, a large Welsh medium secondary school in the Cynon Valley.I would love to be part of the Youth Parliament and would relish the chance to become an elected member . This would give me an opportunity to voice my opinion on the three key issues mentioned previously.    

I’ve been an elected member of my school’s council for 3 years and in that time I’ve had extensive training on the rights of children. The school council has  allowed me a platform to express the views and explore the issues that affect young people within my school and local community.    

 I believe that young people should vote for me as they can trust me to represent them and convey their opinions  in a clear, concise manner.         I'm a very approachable character and a confident public speaker.This is evident as I recently participated and got through to the Welsh final of the RSPCA great debate held in Cardiff Bay.
