A PASSION for “making sure the voices of young people are heard” has a Kingsway Christian College student heading to Canberra to convene with some of the most |politically-minded students in the country.

Nevena Pavlovic is one of 120 students attending the National Schools Constitutional Convention at Old Parliament House next week.

It was hot competition for places at the event with an initial pool of about 4000 students.

The Madeley resident, who studies Year 12 Politics and Law, hopes to have a career in the field.

“I have always had a passion for speaking up. I am ecstatic to be going to Canberra,” she said.

The convention aims to give delegates a deeper understanding of Australia’s Constitution, while focusing on a key topic.

Indigenous Australians and the Constitution is the theme this year, which will have participants consider arguments around the recognition of Aboriginal people in the constitution.

Ms Pavlovic last year represented the Wanneroo district at the YMCA Youth Parliament, where she put her debating skills to the test against her peers.
