Candidate statement: I am a good listener, passionate about my area, and I can offer a strong voice to the young people of Wales. That's why I want to be a Member of the Welsh Youth Parliament for Pontypridd - to represent young people from all walks of life and to ensure fairness, justice and fair play for this generation. I will use social media to communicate with young people, and engage with different groups in order to understand and discuss the challenges they face. I am a 16 year old girl who has experienced many of the difficulties that are common amongst young people, especially after such a long lockdown - and you can rely on me to offer positive solutions and make a difference. I'm a friendly, optimistic person who is open to new ideas in order to make sure everyone is heard. I work in youth clubs in the area, including people with additional needs, and I understand the need for additional resources and services to ensure that everyone can fulfill their potential - regardless of their background and where they live. We need to offer hope and create a better future for Wales’ young people, and I want to play my part in achieving that.
