19-year-old Chinese British Steven Cheung took a campaign bus with his family and team to parade through London to call for votes Thursday, when voters across the United Kingdom went to pollling stations for the European Parliament and British local elections.

Born in Hong Kong and growing up in London, Cheung has been active in public affairs and chosen to run for membership of the European Parliament (MEP) this year instead of going to college.
