Last weekend in Istanbul, at the General Assembly of the International Federation of Liberal Youth (IFLRY), I am extremely proud to say that I was elected Vice President!

For those unfamiliar, IFLRY is the Global umbrella organisation for liberal youth and student organisations around the world, of which Liberal Youth is affiliated to. IFLRY brings together an amazing community of young people, and has given so much to Liberal Youth members who get involved internationally, so I can only be excited at all the chances we get to repay it.

Liberal Youth has a long and successful relationship with IFLRY. I know that back in the days of LDYS we had members of IFLRY’s Bureau (that is, its Executive Committee) – and still today my election follows two years of our own Bobby Dean’s hard work as Vice President. Along with this, for the past two General Assemblies I have had the pleasure of leading one of the largest and most active delegations present, of Liberal Youth members.
