My name is Harry Edwards and I am 15 years old. I live in Cumbria and I'm currently preparing to take my GCSE's. I am the Youth Coordinator for my local parish council and a charity called Friends of Blencathra, who are trying to buy the Blencathra mountain in the Lake District. I'm also hoping to run for MYP in Cumbria next year. Another thing I'm doing is starting an organisation called Young Politics, which aims to get young people aged 11 - 18 interested in politics. The reason I decided to join Omnipolitical is because I love writing articles and I have a great interest in politics. I feel that young people are the answer to many things as we're the future of the United Kingdom. I'm very interested in the campaign Votes at 16 because I feel that many people, aged 16 or 17, want to use their vote, but can't due to the voting age being 18. I would like to be an MP when I am older and I intend on studying political science at University after Sixth Form from 2015 - 2017.
