Today we're cheering on all the fantastic women, past, present and future, as we celebrate International Women's Day.
We're putting the spotlight on one young lady that has been active within the youth cabinet in Milton Keynes for over three years. Sofia Bajerov is running in the local elections, and the results are to be announced in two days time on Friday 10th March 2017.
The Webber Independent participated in voting for their choice of candidate on Monday 6th February 2017.
Commenting on running for the Youth Cabinet, Sofia Bajerov, comments:
"I’ve been an active and confident member of the Youth Cabinet for over three years, and a significant member in many campaigns and events such as the anti-bullying campaign. I know MK extremely well and have represented young people at a local and a national level.
If elected I will campaign to ensure Milton Keynes is a safe and welcoming environment for young people, and ensure that young people's voices are heard. In addition, I will improve intergenerational links with local businesses and organisations to create an environment for young people to be understood and included in decisions."
We are all routing for Sofia and look forward to the outcome of the results.
We have many inspirational young men and women at our school and we can't wait to see how they help shape the future #BeBoldForChange
