Candidate: Olubunmi 'Debbie' Adebayo
Parliamentary Constituency: Southampton Itchen
I’m Debbie and I’m standing for election in Bitterne Park. I am a nurse and genetic councillor, and I volunteer with Diabetes UK.
I am standing in this election because I am very passionate about building a positive legacy and making a difference anywhere I am. I believe in the economic empowerment of women for the benefit of everyone in society. I work to overcome loneliness and mitigate the impact of isolation, which has been so important throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. No elderly person should be lonely.
I also believe in working inclusively for our community, without hindrance or prejudice due to race, colour, gender or religion; we can only solve our problems through unity and togetherness.
I am currently studying International Humanitarian Studies with the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent, and I’ve studied nursing, genomic medicine, travel vaccination practices and child nutrition in Northamptonshire, Exeter and Liverpool.
