My name is Molly, I'm 15 and in September will be starting A-Level courses in English Literature, History, Politics and Sociology.
Although I disagree with the shift to the centre in recent years, I am a member of the Labour Party, but would generally class myself as a socialist and am wholeheartedly anti-austerity. I am also a passionate feminist, environmentalist and care a lot about social inequality and human rights issues.
I ran a campaign calling to improve the body image of teenage girls through the media in 2013 and was interviewed on Radio 4's Woman's Hour about the issue. In 2012 I worked in partnership with the Stockholm Environment Institute to help run and organise a "Youth Earth Summit" to coincide with Rio+20. During this project I had the opportunity to interview the then-deputy leader of the Green Party Adrian Ramsay and to write and record a speech that was shown to world leaders at the Rio+20 conference.
