Where are you from?
I'm 
from Hull, but living in London.

What do you do?
I study Fashion Marketing and Journalism.

Will you be voting in the upcoming General Election?
If you don't vote, you can't complain. So, yes.

If so, who are you going to vote for and why? If not, why not?
The Green Party. We need committed socialists to run the country, real people who have experienced real problems. The "main" parties are in a battle against one another, its one big game. They don't care about the public or planet, instead they give their power away to multi-national corporations.

What issues are closest to your heart?
Capitalism, as it puts vulnerable people in danger if they don't have the support, wealth or love from their family.

What needs to be done to change them?
We need to be less selfish and care about strangers.

What newspapers, magazines or websites do you read to keep up to date with politics?
The Guardian, The Socialist and Russell Brand.

If you could choose anyone in the world to be prime minister, who would you choose and why?
Iris Apfel.
