Congratulations Rosina!
13/06/2014 17:13:00


I’m absolutely delighted that Rosina St James, a member of my campaign team, has been awarded the British Empire Medal in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list for services to the health and wellbeing of children and young people.

Rosina has spent the past five years as a part-time Youth Participation Support Worker in Croydon. She is currently a Youth Ambassador for the Safer London Foundation, helping to support the Metropolitan Police’s Children and Young People Strategy; and is a trustee for the charity vinspired.com, which creates opportunities for young people to volunteer. She has been Chair of the British Youth Council since September 2012 and works with the Department of Health to advocate for improved services for young people. At 17 years old, she started her own social enterprise called TIA (The Inner Attitude), which works with young women in order to help develop self-esteem, confidence and identity.

Having worked closely with her, I can testify to her passion and dedication to help the people that need it the most. I was gutted that she wasn't selected as a Conservative council candidate in a winnable seat and hope we can put that right at the first opportunity. She has a bright future ahead of her.
