Hey! My names Chloe Lintern, I'm 16 and I'm a very passionate young person within the world of politics as well as youth engagement. I'm involved with youth voice and have been since the age of 11 both at a local and national level. I'm also passionate about education and including young people in educational decisions that are made. I am the South West national executive member of Student voice who work as the representative body for school students and supporting young people in representing their views on education and schools. In February 2014 I was elected to UK Youth Parliament for North Wiltshire and recently have been campaigning on votes at 16, a curriculum for life but most recently a living wage and mental health which are all topics I strongly agree with and so look out for articles about them!
I'm in my first year of a-levels studying Business, history, textiles and English literature with the idea to go onto hopefully Exeter University to study politics. I want to go into political research after completing a master’s degree or to work on the stock market and or a dance teacher but that’s another story for another day.
I don’t belong to and never have had a party membership for any party, despite agreeing with different policies from different parties. In the future I will join a political party but for now I’m apolitical especially with my role in UK Youth Parliament.
Just remember your vote counts so use it wisely. You can make a difference.
Favourite quote: " You must make women count as much as men; you must have an equal standard of morals; and the only way to enforce that is through giving women political power so that you can get that equal moral standard registered in the laws of the country. It is the only way" - Emmeline Pankhurst
