Yes. First of all, I think it's definitely very important to have free public transport for young people going to education. Everyone has the right to a free education. So, I think that's...

Candidate Statement: I would love to be a Welsh Youth Parliament Member because I think that it would be an excellent opportunity for me to work with other young people, listen to their views and share my own to be able to make positive change for all young people across Wales. If I was chosen, I would run surveys for students across different schools in Blaenau Gwent to ensure that their voices are heard and to represent other young people’s thoughts, ideas and passions within my community to see their envisions of a better future. Some examples of skills that I obtain include great communication skills due to me taking part in speaking in public LAMDA exams and other presentations and the ability to confidently convey my thoughts on different issues as a result of me being a part of the NSPCC Young People’s Board for Change and me being head girl in school. I think someone should vote for me because I will be able to bring to the Parliament a dedicated attitude and a willingness to stand up for the views of young people in my area on how we can support young people across Wales.
