On Thursday the 16th of March I had the incredible opportunity to meet Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party and MP and Andy Burnham, Labour Party politician, MP and Labours nominee for the first elected Mayor of Greater Manchester. This took place at the Peoples History Museum in Manchester which gathered many like-minded people to fundraise for the Mayor Election campaigns later this year.
Before they both stood up to speak I had the chance to talk to them both, Jeremy was slightly harder to get to with many people wanting to talk to him but I amazingly managed to grab Andy for a while in which we spoke about many problems currently in Manchester. I even got to speak to him about my own project in which he was very interested in helping me out in which has resulted in a potential interview! Andy’s and Jeremy’s speeches were amazingly and incredibly inspirational, giving me much more hope for our futures!
I also spoke to many people at the event with such interesting stories and inspiring motivation to make a difference!
