I’m currently Chief Operating Officer of YouthPolitics UK, an award-winning non-profit organisation dedicated to engaging and empowering young people in politics. Through training workshops, campaigns, events and articles, we enhance the voices of young people in public affairs, helping to bridge the gap between politicians and the youth.
I organised our inaugural conference in March 2018, which brought together 500 young people and featured keynote speeches by Alastair Campbell, Michael Crick and Andy Burnham.
It’s been incredibly rewarding to witness bright young people demonstrating a ferocious passion for political issues, and to play a personal role in facilitating such political involvement.
