Her Majesty The Queen will present a Queen’s Young Leaders Award to an exceptional young person from Malawi at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace, London on Thursday 29th June.

The Award celebrates inspiring young people from all over the Commonwealth who are dedicated to driving change in their communities and beyond.

This year’s Award winner, Virginia Khunguni aged 28, has been recognised by The Queen for her commitment to leading initiatives to end cultural practices that hold back the advancement of young women.

Virginia will be representing Malawi as she joins winners from across the Commonwealth in the UK for a programme of inspiring meetings, networking opportunities and bespoke training and mentoring, all designed to help them to develop as leaders and work with ever greater impact to transform people’s lives.

Selected from a competitive process where thousands of young people from all over the Commonwealth applied to be a Queen’s Young Leader, Virginia Khunguni said: “Being a Queen’s Young Leader will inspire many young girls to rise up and be the change that their society needs.”

The 2017 Queen’s Young Leaders Award winners are working to support others, raise awareness and inspire change on a variety of issues from tackling bullying in schools, to preserving the environment, to promoting gender equality.

Before receiving their Queen’s Young Leaders Award at Buckingham Palace, the winners will visit 10 Downing Street, as well as take part in masterclasses at the BBC World Service and the UK headquarters of global social media company Facebook.

They will also meet the Commonwealth Secretary-General, take part in workshops at the University of Cambridge, meet senior executives from some of the UK’s leading organisations and visit projects that are changing the lives of vulnerable people in the UK.

The programme will finish with the launch of the final ever search for the Queen’s Young Leaders. The application process to become a Queen’s Young Leader of 2018 opens at 09:00 p.m. BST on Thursday 29th June 2017, and this year is the last chance for young people to apply to become a Queen’s Young Leader.
