Generation 2015 profiles: Emily Yates

I'm a 23-year-old accessibility consultant and travel writer. 

I'm originally from Skipton, North Yorkshire, but am currently dividing my time between Cheshire and Rio De Janeiro, where I am working on accessibility and inclusivity for the upcoming 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games. 

Being a wheelchair user, the NHS is a really important issue to me, and I am fully against any further privatisation of it. Education and the current cost of living are also policies close to my heart.
