Hi, I’m Tino. I joined the youth parliament because I want to make Jersey a safe and comfortable place for both adults and young people. I also want to make sure the voices of young people are heard and acted on.
My name is Yasmin and I particularly enjoy reading, mathematics, animals, and of course politics. Politics has always fascinated me, however, I have often felt that young people don’t have enough involvement or contribution regarding our island’s important decisions. I feel most strongly about Jersey’s environmental issues, sexism, homophobia and racism existing in our community. The future depends on what you do today.
