Generation 2015 profiles: Erin Simpson

I'm 20 and from a small island of 1,000 people in Shetland.

I'm a first year international relations student at the University of St Andrews.

Having grown up through the credit crunch, I believe it is vital to rebuild and strengthen our economy.

I'm concerned about opportunities for young people. I don't want to become part of "generation rent" and have to take a zero hours job but the only way to push forward these issues is for young people to vote and make politicians accountable.
