Hi, i’m Niamh! I got involved in NIYF through Belfast Youth Forum. I was a member of the Elephant in the Room subgroup (Mental Health Campaign in NIYF) which introduced me more to NIYF and what they did. I always loved coming to the offices and getting involved with what I could which is why I applied for the Executive Committee. I also got the opportunity to travel to Westminster with NIYF as part of the Brexit group. 

Issues I am passionate about: mental health, poverty, policing and the overall voice of young people.

My Hobbies Include: Belfast Youth Forum, NI Youth Forum, Scouts, City of Belfast Youth Concert Band/Clarinet, writing
