Hansa Ali

Hasna Ali represented the children’s rights charity Tros Gynnal Plant. Hasna was born in Syria, and came to live in Wales with her family as a refugee.

“It was an amazing experience to take a part of Welsh Youth Parliament. Before I joined I was too shy about everything but Youth Parliament helped me to be a strong. The best thing about being a Welsh Youth Parliament Member was that I’ve meet a lot of lovely people and it has also helped me to improve my English language.

“Over all I would like to thank Tros Gynnal Plant and Welsh Youth Parliament who believed in me and also gave me that amazing opportunity.”

If you are a young refugee or asylum seeker aged between 11 and 17 living in Wales, or you know someone who is, and you want to find out more about getting involved with the Welsh Youth Parliament please contact Lee Evans on 07957 472070 or lee.evans@tgpcymru.org.uk
