Generation 2015 profiles: Rhea Saksena

I'm 20 and from Newcastle upon Tyne. I moved to London to study medicine at University College London and am currently in my third year.

I particularly am interested in global public health and the way in which we can act to improve equity in health.

I think that there are a lot of decisions made currently which may be making this harder, both internationally and at home. I feel the biggest challenge my generation faces is apathy towards politics and feeling as if their views and actions are meaningless in the face of decisions already made by higher powers.

While I am not completely resigned to such a view, I would be keen to find out whether politics is as responsive to people as politicians are now claiming it to be.
