Lewisham Young Mayor
Student, Sheniz Elmaz-Golding runs for Lewisham Young Mayor
This year we are proud to have two candidates campaigning for Lewisham Young Mayor. We caught up with Sheniz who is currently studying Art and Design and has high hopes for the changes she would like to see take place in the borough which she has lived in her whole life. We wanted to find out what inspired her to join the campaign, here’s what she had to say:
“I’ve always wanted to inspire younger people. I want to show people that its ok to be you and you can do anything that you set out to do”.
Interviewer: How does studying at CTK tie in with your campaign?
Sheniz: “I feel like it’s good because I can get advice from my peers and teachers and even get my peers to promote me.
Interviewer: “If you were to be successful, what do you hope to achieve by the end of your term as Young Mayor?
Sheniz: “I’d like to create more opportunities for young people, especially minorities. Creating more events and workshops.
