It has been quite a year for Neha Mehta, an A Level student at The Red Maids’ School.

It started with her being elected Bristol Youth Mayor last February, saw her achieve a straight set of A*Grades at GCSE in August and ended with a BBC television appearance. Neha said that her highlights had been sitting on the Learning City Partnership Board in her role as Bristol Mayor, and helping Bristol become a City of Learning for people of all ages.

“I’ve loved working with different Bristol communities and I do feel like I’ve made a difference.”  Neha says.

Her BBC appearance in December was another memorable moment, that saw Neha appear alongside an MP and Baroness to discuss whether or not 16 year olds should have the vote. Not surprisingly, she argued very convincingly that they should!
