Member for Currumbin, Jann Stuckey MP congratulated Carley McNeil today in her success of being selected as the area’s representative for Queensland Youth Parliament.

“Queensland Youth Parliament is a unique opportunity for young people aged 15 to 25 to participate in a youth forum where they can express their views and contribute to their community whilst gaining first hand experience in Parliamentary proceedings,” said Ms Stuckey.

“I am thrilled the youth in the Currumbin electorate have demonstrated such a keen and positive attitude to this initiative.

“Youth parliament is a great opportunity for young people to develop their skills and talents whilst becoming more socially conscious. It is really inspiring to see young people standing up to have a say on issues that affect us all and contribute to their future and the future of Queensland.

“Ms McNeil is very talented and well deserving of this exciting opportunity and I know she will gain a wealth of knowledge and experience from her participation, in addition to having a lot of fun,” Ms Stuckey said.

“I wish her all the best for her participation in this wonderful initiative and in her future endeavours.”
