Her Majesty The Queen to honour Saint Lucian with Queen’s Young Leaders Award

Her Majesty The Queen will present a Queen’s Young Leaders Award to an exceptional young person from Saint Lucia at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace, London on Thursday 23rd June. As the Commonwealth celebrates The Queen’s 90th birthday, this year’s award winner, 23-year-old Tevin Shepherd, is being recognised by The Queen for taking the lead in transforming the lives of others and making a lasting difference in his community. As a Queen’s Young Leader, Tevin will be representing Saint Lucia as he joins winners from 45 different Commonwealth countries in London for five days of high-level engagements, all designed to help them further their life-changing work.

Before receiving their Queen’s Young Leaders Award at Buckingham Palace, the winners will visit 10 Downing Street and the UK headquarters of global social networking company Twitter, and meet with senior executives at the BBC World Service. They will also meet the Commonwealth Secretary General, take part in workshops at the University of Cambridge, have meetings with UK business leaders, and visit projects that are changing the lives of vulnerable people in the UK.
