Bernews Podcast with Namrata Bisht

Ms Bisht, a BHS student who also went to CedarBridge, is the Premier of Bermuda’s Youth Parliament which meets weekly throughout the school terms.

She is trying to bring a more international perspective to debates, such as the on-going war in Syria, whilst at the same time encouraging a more community-based approach.

10-minute podcast with Namrata Bisht:

And if she were Premier for real?

“One of my number one priorities would be to spread awareness about equality,” she said. “That would be probably be accomplished through legislation for marriage equality in Bermuda.”

She said she would also bring more awareness about the disparity in wages in Bermuda.

She said that the Youth Parliament was very civil in its meetings, adding: “We are very respectful of the Speaker and we follow all Parliamentary procedures.”
