‘I 100% would like to see changes with the next elections’

Crystal Appiah, tutor

I am allowed to vote in the UK, but I actually haven’t, but yes, I can vote. I am thinking about voting in the next elections. I 100% would like to see changes, particularly, in childrens’ rights.

I am working part-time as a tutor, and I feel children are very silent. They don’t have much saying in what happens especially when they come from a two-parent household or have parents you know, they get to do everything for them, and they don´t really have a voice. So, I feel like it’s important that children get to talk more about situations they are going through, and are not labelled as liars automatically, especially about abuse and stuff like that.

I would say that politics does affect us. There’s still issues to do with equal pay. And also with how the government is running things at the moment. I feel like a lot happened. I just feel like the people we have in power right now, I feel like they are not exactly supporting the country in the best way. Like the fact that we even have inflation right now, which could have been avoided.
