Last May, Ishen was the Queen of England for a day. Taking part in a performance written by young people about children living in poverty and wearing an elaborate crown, Ishen called on the government to make life better for children in Britain and to stick to its pledge to end child poverty by 2020. Her royal status was fictional, but her request was real.

"We think that every child should be given an equal chance to live in a nice house, have a safe place to play, get the best from school and a good job," she said.
