Abbey was a Member of the first Welsh Youth Parliament from 2018 to 2021.

The following was her candidate statement for election to the first Welsh Youth Parliament:

My key issues are:

  • Mental health
  • Education
  • Welsh language

I want to represent the rural parts of Wales and as a Syrian refugee advocate, I'd like to give the less heard voices a bigger platform. I want to bring new ideas about mental health help for young people, making education a more equal platform for all and boosting the Welsh language across Wales, especially as I'm a Welsh speaker living in an area very close to the border where the language is struggling. I'd consult with my local schools and with the Powys Youth Forum, which I am a proud member.

My time in the forum has given me great experience which I'd love to bring to the Welsh Youth Parliament. My work with the youth forum and my time spent volunteering to teach the Syrian refugees in my past high school to give them more confidence in maths and English allowed me to receive the Newtown High School Community Shield this year. I would absolutely love to be a member of the Welsh Youth Parliament and I'd consider it to be an honour to represent Montgomeryshire. Diolch yn fawr iawn!
