In the News

Part of my role as an MYP is going into the media and voicing the views I was elected to, and to raise awareness of issues important to young people. Here are some Radio interviews and print news articles I was a part of:

Social media interest in my work

Social Media interest in the Mosquito Device Campaign

Social Media interest in the House of Commons Sitting
