We want to vote

Adults are more likely to vote and because of this their decisions majorly affect young people who are too young to vote.

Who wants people to decide for them without having their own say? We should have a say, start by allowing 16-year-olds to vote!

We are socially aware

Believe it or not, young people know more about what is going on around us than older people think.

We are internet experts and although some people might say otherwise, we make good use of it. Instagram informs us about events that happened even as recent as a few minutes ago and Snapchat allows us to instantly display what is happening in our worlds.
