There is very little information on this person, especially regarding what he has actually achieved (none of the six points listed means anything substantial at all). Being the "first British Chinese-Filipino MEP Candidate and the World's youngest" does not say much about himself or his work either. I am Chinese and I support to have more Asian presence in the European Parliament, but I am not convinced he is experienced or educated enough for that yet. (In his video, he described this election process as his gap year experience...)

Steven seems to have done quite well all considering. 4,918 votes. See full results on the bbc website: Hopefully, more Chinese will follow his example and put themselves forward.

I've followed him during the election and I have to say his work is admirable and others like him should be given support to achieve their aims. The awards and opportunities he has been given help to encourage others in the Chinese community to make a positive impact on British Society. However I thought his ideas were very vague at best and despite having his heart in the right place, his 'manifesto' was just full of dreams but little in terms of solid plans for action and relied too much on pushing him as the 'first' and 'youngest' as being good traits for being a member of European Parliament. Now that's just wrong.
