Students elected as Deputy Members of Youth Parliament

Two students from King Edward VI College have been elected as Deputy Members of Youth Parliament in the Youth Parliament Elections.

Natalie Payne and Humayrah Hussein, both first year students, from Nuneaton were elected last month and have now completed their residential training at Whitemore Lakes near Lichfield where they met other members of the Youth Parliament and learnt how to prepare press releases and participate in an interview.

To become a MYP you have to be elected by other young people in an official UKYP election.

The two students had to run a small scale political campaign where they met with youth workers and local young people to discuss the issues they were campaigning for.

Natalie, who is studying Government and Politics, Economics, French and History, said “I’m really looking forward to the campaign work we will be doing .  MYP’s have a lot of different roles but the main thing I want to do is get involved with young people as well as businesses and local politicians to actually make a difference, however small, for young people.”
