Young women from across Wales have come to the Senedd to learn about the inner workings of Welsh politics.
The 21 women have been selected to shadow Welsh Assembly Members as part of a scheme called #LeadHerShip. Organisers said the aim is to inspire a future generation of female leaders.
Tahiya Haque, 17, from Cardiff said she would like to become an Assembly Member.
If Tahiya landed a top job, one of the first things she would want to focus on is mental health.
Another participant, Giezl Hernandez, 18, from Swansea, said she is drawn into politics because of the ability to create "drastic change for the good of the world".
Female politicians can face many challenges but Suzy Davies AM said the situation is improving.
