Zaynab Ikram and Hamza Iqbal however are now “content managers” which is a role on trial, and their aim is to create videos to sort of advertise the youth council and raise awareness to certain issues.

We however say goodbye to a few people. Zoe Cummins, who was our MYP and first ever inclusivity officer. Callum Oliver, who was one of our GMYCA representatives, and Joshua Aspin who was our campaigns officer.

We welcome on Leo Nicholson as a GMYCA representative and Jennifer Whitcombe as the Wellbeings officer.

We additionally see some switches in roles, such as Isaac Quinn and Charlotte Clasby moving up to Chair and Youth Mayor elect respectively, Ying Shi who was once our GMYCA representative now being our DMYP, and Aaliyah Ahmed who went from the Events & Wellbeings Officer role (now Wellbeings Officer) to being a GMYCA representative, Campaigns Officer and Inclusivity Officer.
