Bethany Pringle reflects on the gifts of the National Youth Assembly ahead of the preparation for this year’s event which takes place next month.

THE first National Youth Assembly I attended was in 2013. I also attended the following year, and then returned in 2018 after a few years away.

At the end of NYA 2018 I was one of 18 delegates elected to be a youth rep. The first couple of times I attended as a delegate I was only just old enough to go and quite shy. We are put into small groups during the Assembly and I remember my small group leader asking if I would like to be a youth rep. I immediately came up with several excuses; I was too busy starting university, other people would do it better, it just wasn’t for me. By the time I came to apply this year those excuses had fallen away, and I felt moved to put my name forward.
