Generation 2015 profiles: Rebecca Merchant

I am 23 years old and live in Stoke-on-Trent in the West Midlands. I am originally from the Lincolnshire countryside.

I work as a marketing and communication assistant for a charity. In my spare time, I like cycling and reading.

My opinions are influenced by what I read in the media, and what I see and experience in my day-to-day life.

This will be the second General Election in which I will cast a vote, and my views have changed since I was a student.

Back then, my main concern was reducing university fees.

Now, I'm a full-time worker and a first-time buyer, so my interest has turned to topics such as fair wages, affordable housing, and the NHS.
