Samantha Khan: A Commonwealth Champion

Posted by lostincci on April 15, 2016

Current CMCI MA student Samantha Khan has been dubbed a “Commonwealth Champion” thanks to her work for the Commonwealth Youth Leadership Workshop and Forum.

She received this latest accolade during Commonwealth Week, in which the Commonwealth Secretariat’s Youth Division hosted young leaders for a week of training and networking at the Commonwealth Secretariat’s headquarters in Marlborough House, London. The event sought to develop delegates’ understanding of current issues and to build their leadership, communication and advocacy skills.

Samantha and her colleagues met the Deputy Secretary Generals of the Commonwealth Secretariat, while outgoing Secretary General Kamalesh Sharma named them “Commonwealth Champions” as part of a new initiative to recognise and support the work of leaders around the Commonwealth.

Samantha was invited to the workshop because of the work she already does with yourcommonwealth.org -a youth news website. In addition to contributing articles to the website, she’s an assistant editor. Our photograph shows Samantha at the Commonwealth Youth Forum, held in Malta last year.
