As the Commonwealth celebrates The Queen’s 90th birthday, this year’s Award winner 22-year-old Josephine Nabukenya has been recognised by The Queen for taking the lead in transforming the lives of others and making a lasting difference in her community.

As a Queen’s Young Leader, she will be representing Uganda as she 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.

Josephine Nabukenya has been recognised for her work supporting young people with HIV.

Selected from a competitive process where thousands of young people from all over the Commonwealth applied to be a Queen’s Young Leader, Josephine said: “I am looking forward to receiving my award from Her Majesty The Queen, to network with different successful organisations, youths and individuals and to interact with my online tutors and fellow Queen’s Young Leaders.”

This year’s Award winners are working to support others, raise awareness and inspire change on a variety of issues including education, climate change, gender, mental health and improving the lives of people with disabilities.

The application process to become a 2017 Queen’s Young Leader opens at 8:00pm BST on Friday 24th June 2016.

Officials said the programme is looking for people aged between 18 and 29 who are dedicated to creating positive changes to the lives of people in Uganda.
