Aniq Ahmed NAWAZ

Aniq Nawaz - Candidate for Heston WestAniq is 18 years old, and the youngest Liberal Democrat candidate for Heston West Ward.

Currently Aniq is a college student, studying a vocational skill based course, BTEC Level 3 Games-Programming. He is pursuing his dreams and aims to be a software developer mostly geared towards creating games.

Aniq strongly believes that young voice is not heard or given enough importance by Hounslow Council. None of the council representatives from either Labour or the Conservatives within the Council have been able to understand the needs of the youth in Hounslow and hence they have not been able to deliver youth agenda.

Aniq is passionate to have a young student voice in the Council and would aim to bring improvement to education, with emphasis on a more diverse curriculum, and increased pupil involvement in the pastoral care element. In particular, Aniq is concerned about stress-related health issues due to the unnecessary demands and expectations affecting pupils who may be gifted in other ways but not in pure academic achievements. Finally, in relation to the safety of young people on the streets of Hounslow, Aniq feels that young ones are very vulnerable on the streets and are targeted by gangs and drug providers. They should be engaged in other initiatives and programmes which will take them off the streets and keep them safe.
