Abhiramm Iyer

Abhiraam is an 8th grade students who enjoys technology, politics and more. Nowadays, it can be noticed that there is a lack of young people in politics. It results in a less inclusive environment and leads to less efficient and effective policies. To change this, youth should actively participate in politics. This way of politics would allow the youth to take their future into their own hands.
