Generation 2015 profiles: Peter Gillibrand

I'm 18 years old and come from near Carmarthen. I am currently a first year PPE student at the University of Exeter.

I got involved in politics when I was in Sixth Form as a result of concern for my severely autistic brother, as he was living within the care system.

I am passionate about politics as a whole and enjoy debating with anyone.

When I'm not getting serious about issues, I enjoy many more things such as rugby, which I play for my university, EURFC, and my home club, Newcastle Emlyn.

I am a very sociable person who enjoys going out with my mates for a few beers, as well as being a keen member of many university societies. I run marathons for autism awareness.
