My passion lies within the field of Youth Development. I firmly believe that
our youth are our future leaders of tomorrow and therefore we should invest
in our youth social and educational well being to prepare them for the road
ahead. I engage with Youth throughout the region because I am part of may
organisations. I an currently the Public Relation Officer of the National

ActionsYour response to this question will be viewable on your One Young World
I have created positive changes in my community and country at large. I
initiated a Cleanup Campaign in my district during last Year which was very
effective in combating the dengue fever and chikungunyia epidemic. These
epidemics were taking up a toll on persons lives withing the communities due
to the cleaning habits and therefore persons were advice to remove all bulky
waste at and near their homes which can breed mosquitoes. The Ministry of
Health and Solid Waste Management was on board with me and it took us three
days passing from community to community to remove waste at people's homes
and sensitize them about the diseases. There has been a major decrease in
infected persons from this campaign and it is a practice i have planned to
continue every six months.
Also, in my community I have taken up the leading role in doing fundraising
activities like football and cricket Rama to ensure that the club is always
up and running since it serves as a pillar for the community. The community
is forever active since the club is well functioning.
At a national level, I am a youth parliamentarian and debator where we
discuss the issues that affects us youth and possible solutions that can be
initiated to the Government. It is appalling that our suggestions are taken
into consideration. Youth Parliament educate young people about the
challenges they face and ways in which they can overcome these challenges.
Many persons look forward to Youth Parliament every year since we speak on
behalf of youth.
Moreover, I have been part of many programmes to name a few; St Lucia
Leader's Summit Camp, BILD programme, Fun and Sports Day, Ecumenical Service,
etc. I donate my time to whatever organisation that needs it as long as it is
in the best interest of young people.
