My name is Saadia Sajid, I am 15 years old, currently living in East London and at present, doing my GCSE’s at Plashet Secondary Specialist School. As an aspiring MP, I am part of the BYC Youth Select Committee, my local Youth Council, previous Young Mayor Candidate and Student Ambassador for Model Westminster as well as being a delegate and chair for the Model UN conferences in London.
I’ve recently been participating in numerous campaigns, including votes at 16, health care issues and public transport. I’ve also had to take control of producing reports, articles, presenting presentations to a wide audience and generally just getting involved in community events within my constituency.
I have a strong passion for debating and public speaking. Qualifying for the ICYD 2014 Finals at the Oxford Union this year as well as coming 4thin the running for the title ‘London Debate Mate Champions’. I strive on youth political engagement and political awareness and I cannot wait to see what the future of Omnipolitical brings to revitalise youth politics as well as being a podium for young people to set forth their views!
