I’m excited to announce that I have recently been granted the distinction of Associate Fellow of The Royal Commonwealth Society! It truly is a privilege and honour to be recognised among so many talented, enthusiastic and passionate young people from around the world.
The Associate Fellowship of The Royal Commonwealth Society offers young people from across the Commonwealth the opportunity to become part of an ever-growing network, offering opportunities, resources and a platform for discussion. Associate Fellowship is granted to those who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to promoting the values of the Commonwealth, as well as to those working to improve the lives of Commonwealth citizens.
The Royal Commonwealth Society, founded in 1868, is a network of individuals and organisations committed to improving the lives and prospects of the 2.4 billion Commonwealth citizens across the world.
Through youth empowerment, education and advocacy, The Royal Commonwealth Society promotes the value and the values of the modern Commonwealth. The Society champion human rights, democracy and sustainable development through their international networks and across the 53 member states which are intrinsically linked through their common history and shared values. You can read more about The Royal Commonwealth Society here, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2018.
I’m very excited for things to come in the future now that I am a part of this incredible network, and look forward to working with many more young people in realising our shared potential and power to drive change for the better.
