Sheffield | MYP | Elected: 28th March 2012
I am one of hundreds of MYP's across the UK. I champion causes in Sheffield by organising events, running campaigns, making speeches, holding debates and meeting with MP's and local councillors. The most important part of my job is to represent the views of the young people in Sheffield and ensure that they are listened to by decision makers. Any young person can help support an MYP and their campaigning activities to help make a difference to the lives of young people.
