Masudah told the Tab Cardiff she was "really excited and grateful" to be mentioned in Parliament by her MP.

At just 14, Masudah spent her summers volunteering with her Assembly Member for Cardiff North. Since the age of 16, Masudah has been campaigning for votes and encouraging other young people to get involved with politics.

At the age of just 18, Masudah stood in the Local Cardiff council elections 2017 where she represented her community by raising issues that impacted local residents such as the control of dog notices.

She is also excited about the debate mentioned, saying : "I'm really looking forward to watching the debate on talented young women and the role they can play to the public"

Going forward, Masudah said she would like to do the LPC and go down the solicitor route, "maybe one day standing as a candidate again". Her focus for now is to continue to campaign for the party and encourage other young members to do the same.
