Getting pregnant at 18 didn't mean my life was over. It meant that I get to live life with Reuben. Of course I spend most of my time doing all of the dinosaur and Fireman Sam related activities but I also still do everything I used to... but I do everything with Reuben. And I wouldn't have it any other way.
The rise of brief trends over classic style and shoddy workmanship at cheap prices in the fashion industry is damaging both our planet and its people. I'm a 25 year old designer and I wanted to share with you the story of how a t-shirt could be what's needed to engage the mass market with sustainable fashion.
Making Britain a place that enables our young people to become the very best versions of themselves they can be isn't just about their success, it's about how we make sure we are successful as a nation. A big part of how we unite our country after the EU referendum must be an even stronger focus on opportunity. It's got to be a level playing field of opportunity for everyone - that's how we will deliver the country that Theresa May describes, one that works for everyone, not just the privileged few.
To continue to endorse Corbyn as leader is to cement Labour's position as the opposition party. Corbyn must have a place in the party, but the leader must be someone who can bridge the gap between the centre left politicians and those on the hard left and not someone who divides them.
That isn't idealism. That isn't building a better nation. It's no different than building a wall to the outside world, one that we can't even build high because we have to reach over it in order to do anything. This wasn't for young people. And if anything comes out of this, I hope young people do not forget it.
The future of our jobs and prosperity for young people is now at risk. Growing up as a young person in Britain is not easy. We are often referred to as the apathetic generation and in most cases, the generation that is not worth engaging with because we are less likely to vote.
It is important now to accept that the Remain camp has lost - no petition, no do-over will change that. This campaign and result has noticeably divided and damaged our country already - we cannot let it get any worse. The EEA option is the best one for our nation to emulate. Now, liberals must hijack Brexit and make it just for the sake of Remainers and the sake of our increasingly segregated society.
While the script for Friday's national result declaration remains unwritten, let us hope that the words selected resemble the ones crafted by the 16th century poet John Donne who said this: "no man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent."
Young people may be the most affected by the result of the EU referendum. But too often, the media and politicians have shown they aren't interested in our opinions. Despite us being the ones who will deal with the consequences of this vote for the longest, the drama of whether Team Cameron or Team Johnson will control the Conservative Party after Thursday has dominated the coverage.
Look around you. Look at the poison you have created and ask yourself, what are you leaving me? This is your legacy and, regardless of Thursday's result, my generation may well spend the rest of our lives cleaning up.
I've had enough of trying to make sense of intangible migration statistics and arguments over the prospects of striking fabulous trade deals versus forecasts of a severe economic downturn. I don't want to get caught up in a Tory civil war, scaremongering and shouting matches.
