My name is Beverley Momenabadi, at 27, I am currently the youngest Labour Councillor in Wolverhampton.
I studied Youth and Community Services and graduated in 2013. Following this, I started working at a large homeless charity in the Black Country as a manager. I worked mainly with homeless young people aged 16-25, supporting them to achieve and break the cycle of homelessness.
I began a career in Politics in 2017 when I started to work for a Labour MP in Wolverhampton where I still work for him as a Senior Communications Assistant. I was then elected in 2018 when I ran in the Local Elections for the ward that I live in- Ettingshall. I feel extremely privileged to hold this position and represent the people of Ettingshall and Wolverhampton.
I currently volunteer as a Youth Officer for the Labour Party where I actively engage and work with young people to develop their understanding of Politics and activism in the party.
In addition to this, I do some sessional work for the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner where I work with young people in the Midlands to help them develop their knowledge and understanding of their rights when stopped and searched by police.
In my spare time, I take a keen interest in the Palestine and Israel conflict and have travelled to the Middle East to do aid work in this region three times since 2015.
