Age 17, Scotland
Young people are the ones that will suffer the mess created by previous generations – if our voices aren’t heard.
I’ve been making my voice heard through social action since I was 14 and have just joined Glasgow Youth Council. Their motto is ‘To listen, to speak, to change’, which sums up the value of youth voice to me.
Most recently, I’m really excited to have been elected as the Member of Scottish Youth Parliament for Glasgow Pollok. This will give me an extraordinary opportunity to improve the lives of young Scots and make sure they can have their say.
