I live with a disability and I have spent time trying to overcome the challenges associated with autism. I am a strong believer in supporting young people and giving them a voice. I believe schools need help to listen and better understand young people particularly those that struggle. I want to be the voice for the voiceless and be there to stand up for the unheard and misunderstood. I enjoy politics, the natural world and learning more about people. I love spending time with my friends, reading books, graphic novels and being with my cat.
I have spent time on my school council trying to improve the school, helping people and making everyone feel their opinions have been heard and understood. I am also a school ambassador where I enjoy being part of a great team doing great work for the benefit of all.
I want to engage with those around me and those who share my passion for helping others young and old. I am enthusiastic, driven, a hard worker and eager to be the voice for all those people in my area.
I want to introduce fairer GCSEs, with more emphasis on course work assessment and less on an exam. I want to encourage the government to change GCSEs to help increase pass rates and open up more opportunities for young people.
I know people on free school meals, and I know how hard it is for these families. I think the money for free school meals should be increased as prices for food have gone up in schools meaning less choice.
Nobody should not be able to go to their local school. I have personally experienced how schools are not inclusive for people with disabilities and I want to ensure local schools are fully inclusive for all.
I want to be the voice of the young person, tell our story to everyone that will listen, fight for change and inspire those that face daily challenges to reach their full potential as I am proof you can overcome difficulties and succeed.
