MY KEY ISSUES ARE:
Lowering the voting age to 16
A better funding system for schools
Health and wellbeing of young people
I am a confident, ambitious and enthusiastic young person, and eager to expand my horizons.
I firmly believe that the opportunity to be a member of the Welsh Youth Parliament would be a very valuable experience.
This is a unique opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills and offer ideas for improving our country.
As a member of the Youth Parliament, I will strive to influence significant changes in Welsh policies, and improve the lives of all young people in Wales by lowering the voting age, try to improve school funding systems and focus on your health and wellbeing.
Whether you are privileged or underprivileged, a boy or a girl, aged 11 or 17, Welsh-speaking or not, your lives are a priority for me and our country.
I do not believe that you, as young adults, get the golden opportunities that you deserve - would you like to be heard? Would you like more of a voice? Would you like to see significant change within your community?
It would be a pleasure to represent you in Torfaen - we will be the change that must be seen in Wales today. Thank you very much, Maisy Evans.
