The prestigious Awards program is now in its fourth and final year, having celebrated exceptional young people aged 18 to 29 from across the Commonwealth, and the work they are undertaking to improve lives across a diverse range of issues, from supporting people living with mental health problems, helping children to receive a quality education, to promoting gender equality.
Lakeyia will now join the Queen’s Young Leaders network of 240 Award winners, a unique community of influential change-makers, who represent all 52 Commonwealth countries. The winners announced today will receive their Award from Her Majesty The Queen at a special ceremony at Buckingham Palace in London, UK, next year.
Lakeyia is from Roseau. She was chosen in recognition of the work she is doing to support young people from low-income families, and for promoting gender equality in her community and beyond.
