If you follow the blog on social media you will be aware that I am currently covering the upcoming elections to the Scottish Youth Parliament. As a young person living in Scotland this is an important issue to me, and as someone who wishes to pursue a career in political journalism, it is a great opportunity for The Humanity Complex.
I know some of the candidates who are running for election in the Airdrie and Shotts constituency, so I have decided to follow their campaigns and provide information through the blog.
The first planned feature will be an interview with two of the candidates running for election in the area, Christopher Costello and Ryan McGuigan. The interview will ask the candidates to explain their stance on some of the biggest issues facing young people in Scotland, from education to employment, and how to improve the lives of young people in Scotland.
Once this is finished I will constantly update the blog with messages from the candidates, and continue to highlight their stances on numerous issues, as well as compare their views. I will also be uploading information about the elections to the Scottish Youth Parliament and will be writing posts in regard to the importance of young people’s voices being heard.
