  1. Where is this young man from first time I am hearing of him. Is he related to Danley ... Similar to the MOntoute girl in Gros Islet


    • Are you seriously implying that the Queen's Young Leader Award judged by UK Technocrats are influenced by petty Saint Lucian politics? My dear don't be a sheep, stay informed and conduct your research before your opening your mouth. Ajani Lebourne is a youth activist and student governance advocate, he played an instrumental part in the revitalization of the National Students Council growing the Student Movement in Saint Lucia. Ajani received this awards was help deserved. The Queen Young Leader Award Applications was open online for anyone across the Commonwealth to apply. My dear ignorance is not bliss.


  2. What blasphemy. Referring to a mere mortal as "Majesty" . Such an attribute should solely be ascribed to the Almighty God and Him only. I am sure it is nice to be honored by an earthly monarch, however I urge all young persons to aspire to receive the reward of eternal life, from the King of Kings and Lord of Lords: Jesus Christ. For this reward and it alone has everlasting value; every other is temporal and fleeting.


  3. CONGRATS! We need these positive stories with all that is happening congrats young man!!
