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

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

My Key Issues are:

  • SAP Trained Staff in Schools
  • Plastic Free Schools
  • Learners having Life Skills Training

I would relish the opportunity to be a WYP as I feel it is important for the young people of Merthyr and Rhymney to have a well rounded representative speaking for them and making a change for our future. I am fortunate enough to be a learner at Pen y Dre High School (PYD) and we have recently won a Pearson Teaching Award for our links with parents and the community. PYD learners are lucky to be given opportunities where we work closely with our community and we have plenty of facilities to hold meetings and community events.

As a GCSE Drama student, I have taken part in many productions. I am confident with preparing for and addressing large crowds and I grab every opportunity to make a difference to my school and the young people here. I have always been a valued member of PYD's extremely visible Student Parliament.

I have made my way up from class representative, to year representative and am now preparing for my application to be Head Boy. People should vote for me as I am approachable, a good listener and when I have a plan I am determined to accomplish it promptly and perfectly.
