Statement to voters
I have lived in the Royal Borough of Greenwich for ten years, and have been active on issues like education, employability and climate change. I put myself forward as a councillor candidate for the Middle Park and Sutcliffe ward as I want to make our community an even better place to live for today's residents and future generations.
Over the next four years, I commit to bringing this perspective to initiatives that:
1. Connect local youths to employability solutions and create a network with employers to open up more apprenticeship opportunities.
2. promote the creation of more affordable housing solutions for young families entering the housing market as well as for our seniors and homeless citizens.
3. provide safer streets across the ward and take initiatives to educate the youth on keeping the neighbourhood safe.
Educated to the doctoral level, I have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the Further Education and the Higher education sector. I am currently mentoring for the Prince's Trust to assist youth in getting into employment.
I am excited to use my academic and professional knowledge within a community that I care. Together we can build a more affordable, sustainable, and vibrant community. Vote Green on the 3 May 2018.
