Amy Lee takes on top role
Rutherglen’s Member of the Scottish Youth Parliament (MSYP) has pledged to make the voices of young people across Scotland heard.
Amy Lee Fraioli was officially inducted as chair of the Scottish Youth Parliament (SYP) earlier this month.
Having served as MSYP for Rutherglen for the past three years, Amy Lee was presented with the‘MSYP of theYear Award’at SYP’s annual awards ceremony in March 2017.
She has represented the membership at a number of national and international events, including meeting with the Secretary of State for Scotland, speaking with officials from the government of Catalonia, and meeting with the vice chair of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Children and Young People’s Commissioner Scotland.
Speaking of her new role, Amy Lee said:“I’m delighted to have been elected to lead the Scottish Youth Parliament at a very exciting time in the charity’s history.
“The fact that the board is comprised of MSYPs hailing from all over Scotland – including three island-based members - is evidence that SYP continues to be diverse and representative of young people in this country.
“SYP has so much to be proud of, and I’m looking forward to getting to work to ensure the voices of Scotland’s young people are heard, loud and clear, by our decision-makers.”
