 I joined the LYC because I was especially interested in local politics and was also especially aware of  the many civil rights issues faced not only by people in our borough but nationwide. I therefore wanted to join an organisation that would enable me to have a platform to speak for people who are underrepresented and unable to do so themselves. 

 

Fun fact: I love anime and reading!

Hi I'm jaden I am 14 and I  joined the Lambeth youth council to improve the lives of young people and generations after. I hope to do something like law so I can seek justice for people who have been wronged. I have always wanted to help others but never knew how but ever since I joined the lyc I knew this was the way forward.
