“I wish that the government knew that young people are interested in the world around them, and have ideas that are worth listening to. Many young people are concerned about the future and have plans and strategies to make it a better place, but are lacking an adequate platform to share these ideas.

I think if more politicians speak with young people and focus on more long-term goals, youth can stop being the “leaders of tomorrow”, and can start making changes today.”
