Statement to voters
I am a product of multiculturalism. I believe that this country's greatest strength lies in its diversity. I also believe that being part of the EU provides opportunities to shape and reshape the union, and that leaving is fundamentally wrong and disempowering for our country and its future. Having grown up in rural West Wales, I became interested in politics at a young age. I am half-Welsh and half-Iranian, and my sense of identity has been strongly influenced by ideas of belonging and of being disenfranchised.
Although I have always been interested in politics and current affairs, I have never before been motivated to stand for election. I have decided that I have to do something now, however, as I am so sure that the current situation predicts irrevocable damage for future generations.
