Rhian 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:

  • Betterment of the Environment
  • Improved Living Standards in Cardiff
  • Importance of the Education System

Representing the voices of young people has never been so required and prominent than right now. By becoming a Youth Parliament member, I hope to not only ensure that this newfound importance continues but is focused into the community around me. Politics needs to be accessible to all.

By voting for me you will ensure that young people like you, at the grass roots, will make a recognisable change. Issues which I aim to bring to light are issues that concern you not only as a young person, but as a young person in Cardiff. Education, living standards and the Environment are three of the many important topics that are imperative to discuss in terms of youth representation.

I will work directly with members of my constituency in a friendly but also professional matter, to listen to the factors they think are important. Being involved in politics not only means representation but also empathy and understanding. I hope to be elected in order to improve my city and lay a foundation for the younger generation to grow and build upon.

Thank you for taking the time to read my statement, and Pob Lwc to the other candidates!
