I may not have finished my education, but I have never stopped learning! Reflecting on this I now know that if I could go back I would have stayed in school. Which brings me to the point: the issues and challenges our youth of Sydney are currently facing requires their direct input. This is why in the upcoming City of Sydney Council Election I have put forward as one of my policies is to have our very own Youth Council.
Imagine, 24 young people aged between 13-24 coming together to discuss and work through and address the issues that matter to them. The ‘Youth Council’ will be taken seriously and conducted just like our current council meetings, with meetings and reporting.
