In which Jasneet Samrai shares the experience of being a young person involved in politics.
Being a young person in politics is hard. I wish it wasn’t, but it is. It’s also a rare occurrence.
Don’t get me wrong, being involved in politics is something that I really enjoy, yet as a young person it’s a system that is ultimately rigged against me. The crisis in both the lack of youth participation, and the culture within youth politics itself, is not due to a problem with my generation; instead due to a seismic failure within our own political system.
