Generation 2015 profiles: Julia Pearson

I'm an 18-year-old sixth form student from Newport, in South Wales. My political concerns vary across a broad spectrum, from social welfare to action against climate change.

I've written a dystopian young adult novel and am steadily accumulating rejection letters from literary agents. Despite the setbacks, I dream of becoming a published author someday.

At 18, I am currently in my last year of sixth form, and am studying history, geography and economics for A Level; I hope to study politics at university later this year.
