Hi, I am Sophie. I love the YEA, it's like a second family to me. Outside of the YEA, I am part of the UK Youth Parliament, British Youth Council and I am Vice-Chair of the Castle Point Youth Council. I am also part of the Castle Point Youth Strategy Group and my school council. I have recently been nominated for two awards: one for my services to Parliament and one for my services to youth in Essex and my area through my school. I am also completing my Silver Duke of Edinburgh Award and working towards Grade 5 in LAMDA drama.
