Generation 2015 profiles: Jessica Taberner

I'm a 20 year old student at University of Salford and am currently in my 2nd year studying for a BSc in Social Policy.

I am originally from Derby, but was born in Germany to military parents. I am known for my very strong right wing views.

The main issues that concern me are cutting welfare, immigration, student living costs and mental health services.

I am a strong believer that work should pay and find it an insult when I hear the phrase "I don't work because I'm better off on benefits".

I also believe everyone should vote. No vote, no moaning.
