Meg welcomes Sheffield Youth Parliament member Sadik Miah to Westminster

Wednesday, March 3, 2004

MP’s may have been slightly confused yesterday while walking through Parliament and seeing a series of trainer wearing and gelled haired young people. Little did they know that there was a session being held for some of the UK’s brightest, most political savvy youth - a conference for MYP’s (Members of the Youth Parliament) across the United Kingdom. These representatives were all elected to their positions due to their desire to make a positive difference in the areas in which they live.

 

Meg Munn, Labour and Co-operative Party MP for Sheffield Heeley and a long-time advocate of engaging young people in democracy, was delighted to meet Sadik Miah, one of the current MYPs of Sheffield and recipient of the prestigious Star Young person of the year award.

 

She said "It’s great to see that Sheffield now has members of the UK youth parliament. I was pleased to welcome Sadik to Westminster. He spoke proudly of Sheffield and set out his plans for his term of office. I look forward to working with him over the next year on issues affecting young people."

 

Sadik explained his reasons for standing as MYP were rooted in his ‘strong passion of representing the youth of Sheffield? this is a great way for the youth of Sheffield to have their voices heard in a Democratic process.’ Some of the reforms Sadik seeks to implement are increased accessibility to leisure facilities and an increase in the minimum wage. The young humanitarian would also like to see a day set out in Sheffield where ‘all different types of people from various backgrounds can come together and celebrate both our differences and similarities.’ Sadik was noticeably honoured to represent Sheffield, saying, ‘Sheffield is an excellent city with a very small percent of racism, it is a city in which all of its citizens can be proud.’
