Her Majesty The Queen of England will present Joshua Isikeli Sefesi from Tonga the  Queen’s Young Leaders Award at a special ceremony at Buckingham Palace, London, on Tuesday 26th June.

The Awards recognize the work that young people from across the Commonwealth are doing to transform lives in their community and beyond.

Joshua, 26, will receive the Queen’s Young Leaders Award for the work he is doing to raise awareness of sexual reproductive health and women’s rights in Tonga.

Joshua was selected following a competitive process involving thousands of applicants across the Commonwealth.

Together they join a network of 240 powerful young leaders, from 53 Commonwealth countries, who are driving change to make the world a better place.

The 2018 Queen’s Young Leaders are finding solutions to global issues such as climate change, food scarcity, gender-based violence, mental health, and access to education.
