Kenny decided to pursue his love for politics from a young age and has been in the political arena from age 16, his favourite political figures being: Thomas Jefferson, Henry Kissinger, Mahatma Gandhi, Winston Churchill, Clement Atlee, Tony Blair and Barack Obama.

It was whilst on this journey, Kenny’s passion was ignited to investigate, create and write the “Kenny Report” on “how do politics and economics affect young people and serious youth violence across the UK.” He produced the 30,000 word report with  guidance from Coreplan and was sponsored by Jonathon Toy, the Head of Community Safety at Southwark Council.

The purpose of the Kenny Report is to raise awareness and articulate the challenges of young people from vulnerable communities, who are suffering from socio-economic deprivation. The report seeks ways in which we can resolve many of the socio-economic issues young people and their families face. It was launched in November 2012 at the House of Commons with Rt Hon Simon Hughes MP, Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrats, who sponsored the event.
