Member for Kiama Gareth Ward has announced that Albion Park resident Stephanee-Chase Horton will be representing NSW at the 10th Commonwealth Youth Parliament in Delhi, India. Stephanee will be leaving this Sunday after completing her HSC earlier this month.
“I am delighted that Stephanee has been selected to represent New South Wales on the international stage. Our region has some of the brightest youth and it is exciting to have someone from our community being an international voice for young people,” Mr Ward said.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for future leaders to engage in discussion and debate on some important contemporary issues. The agenda will include debates, votes on Bills and Government motions.
“Young people like Stephanee will get the experience of life in the Parliamentary spotlight and show how the next generation would approach Parliamentary debates on a global context. With representatives coming from across the globe, Stephanee will meet young people from literally all walks of life.”
With 60% of the Commonwealth’s population aged under 30, the Commonwealth Youth Parliament is one of the key programs organised by the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association that respond to the needs of its young constituents. The 10th Commonwealth Youth Parliament will run from 24 - 28 November in Delhi, India, with attendees from every corner of the Commonwealth.
