My name is Dylan. I am a 20-year-old History and Politics student from South-East London. Since the age of 15, I have become more and more interested and engaged in political discourse around the world.
The night after the UK Parliament voted to carry out airstrikes on Da’esh in Syria in 2015, I created this blog. Since then, I have been writing (albeit on and off) about the issues I care about.
I did A levels in Politics, History and English Literature and am going to study Politics and History at the University of Glasgow from September 2020 onwards.
I am the Youth Officer for Knight’s Hill branch Labour Party, having been a member since the summer of 2015 when I joined to vote for Jeremy Corbyn MP to become leader to shape a new political path in this country, and forge a new socio-economic and political culture.
I was one of four students in my school’s sixth form to create and help organise the Feminist Society, to which I gave talks to and chaired debates with my peers.
In 2018 and 2019, I worked with the Lambeth Youth Council’s (LYC), recording and writing about what the young councillors are up to in our local community and beyond. A stand out moment from that time was helping on the ‘It Made Me Fell’ campaign on child sexual harassment and abuse, which featured on ITV London News.
I have also written for other online blogs, such as PRBLMTC – https://prblmtc.com/ – read my articles, and other amazing writers on Feminism, politics and much more.
This is the home of my views. I hope you enjoy!
