Why get active in politics now?
"I feel strongly about the plight of the youth and the lack of opportunities they have now. I tutored many young people, and it hurts me to see that many have so little hope and so few aspirations. I believe that young people should be taught more about self-employment and entrepreneurship; these are skills that will enable them to provide for themselves in the future.
"I aim to be a candidate that has the kind of impact my community needs and which is driven by what people want and not by the old Westminster system of party before country."
