My name is Shanita Jetha, I am 17 years old, and in my final year of A levels, aspiring to study Political Science and International Relations at University.
I have a deep interest in youth politics, having played an active role in Northern Futures. I am currently a Model Westminster Ambassador, part of the Financial Education group at Young CB and represent young people through StudentVoice. As a Member of Youth Parliament for Brent, I have previously written an article for ‘The Courier’ magazine in order to encourage other young people to get involved too.
I decided to join Omnipolitics as I feel it is an excellent way to be involved in youth democracy, whilst also engaging young people internationally. It is a great privilege to be part of the team and I look forward to writing articles and participating in various debates immensely.
