Rabia Bhatti, became one of the youngest councillors in the UK when she was elected to represent Newtown ward. She follows in the footsteps of her father, Councillor Mohammad Bhatti. Miss Bhatti believes, age has nothing to do with it, as long as you've got the right attitude and you're passionate about helping people then there should be no restrictions." Her father is very proud and believes, she will be a very good councillor. She's very intelligent and has a lot of experience."
Miss Rabia Bhatti lived all her life in Chesham and was educated locally. She is very passionate about Chesham and not only thinks it is a great place to live but also that there is so much more that can be done. She promises to work hard and represent all constituents. She is very passionate about the provision of Youth services in the locality as well as ensuring that all people feel safe and secure in her community. She has watched the work of her father Councillor Bhatti has done in the area and want to follow in his footsteps to help make the area an even better place for all.
Miss Bhatti has a history of holding responsible and public speaker roles in the community. She became a governor at Newtown School, the youngest governor in Bucks at the time, she chaired the Chiltern Community Cohesion Conference in Chesham and she is the first student president at Aylesbury College, where she studies Law, Philosophy and Psychology.
These positions gave her high responsibility and opportunity meeting people all the time to see their day to day needs. She feels because of her strong ties to Chesham, can make the changes Chesham wants and needs and can help to progress the town.
This is the first step for Rabia Bhatti. She would like to go into main stream politics. She has realised the more you put in the more you get out, and that's what attracts her to it. Being one of the country's youngest female councillors and making that history is definitely phenomenal for her and she hopes it will inspire other people."
