I am a young person who is currently trying to find her feet in life. Whilst juggling school life with caring for my disabled brothers I am also involved in many aspects of the community. As a member of the UK Youth Parliament I play a vital role in getting the voices of young people in my constituency heard by people who can make a difference. I also campaign for change in the area on the behalf of the young people 11-19 I represent. I am still working things out for myself so any advice people could give would be gratefully recieved.
Making a difference, learning new things and speaking out on the behalf of people who do not have a voice.
All people have ideas, thoughts and opinions, and all can make a difference. This includes teenagers. Whilst the media and certain members of the older generation have us all pegged down as trouble makers over 80% of young people in the UK regularly give back to their communities in ways that many adults could not imagine. Give them a chance and they can offer a lot more than you think. New attitudes, fresh perspectives and unwavering dedication to anyone willing to give them the opportunities they need. Remember - you were once young too.
Absolutely anything! You will find a fresh perspective through young pair of eyes.
I can't really say as I am still trying to work it out myself!
