Queen’s Young Leaders 2018

The Queen’s Young Leaders is an award program for young people between the ages of
18-29 across the Commonwealth nations of the world. The program is sponsored by the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust, Comic Relief, University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education, and the Royal Commonwealth Society. This award is given to 60 young leaders and a few runners up. Started in 2014, the program has now come to its final year and on December, 5th, the final group of winners and runners up were selected.

I was one of the privileged people to have won the runners up prize two days shy of my 18th Birthday and join this elite group of young leaders. My victory was not possible without the support of my students at the National Association of the Blind and my mentors there.

Now, all I’m looking forward to is my journey as a Queen’s Young Leader,2018 highly commended runner-up.

Thank you all for your support!
