Generation 2015 profiles: Mark Francos

I'm 18 years old from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, studying information technology management for business at Northumbria University.

I'm a highly varied person who loves to enjoy life and be a teenager but also looks at the bigger picture and what is happening within our country.

My biggest influences come from my heritage of coming from a indigenous British family with added Eastern European roots. This really shapes me when it comes to many major issues such as the EU, welfare and immigration.

My friends would say I only say what I believe, with no sugar coating or diplomacy.
