On May 3rd I was a awarded a Contributions to the Youth Service Award, for my commitment and work during the past 6 years of my life . I have lead workshops, encouraged disabled young people to be involved in the community, traveled around the country to promote positive images of young people, advising and working closely with councillors and MPs. I received my award from the Mayor of Dudley at the Dudley Council House. As well as this, my role as DMYP for Dudley was passed over to the new young people who I shall be working with now as PG (procedures group) representative for the West Midlands which I was elected into by my fellow members and deputy members of UK Youth Parliament.
