Youth Mayor's Biography "Hello, I’m Chloe, 15 years old and the first youth mayor of Milton Keynes. Being Youth Mayor is a blessing and I’m excited to develop an enjoyable space for our youth. I love meeting new people when I’m not out, you can often find me nose deep in a crime novel or exploring our city on my bike. As for hobbies, I am currently on a mission to learn Spanish which is a fun challenge that keeps me engaged and opens up connections with people from different backgrounds. My passions for the environment and community fuel everything I do, whilst I hope to empower and engage young voices, fostering a more sustainable and inclusive community, whilst addressing key issues that matter to the next generation."
