My name is Njemile Webb, and I am the Youth Advocacy Leader of Comtalk International, Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. I have been performing Advocacy work for almost all of my teenage years because of my passion for helping others and making a difference as it relates to HIV and AIDS.
My experiences being at the PANCAP Youth Leaders Meeting has been nothing short of amazing. There was constant reinforcing of knowledge. I have had the pleasure of networking with other Caribbean Young Leaders where information and statistics at country-level are shared as it pertains to young persons.
I have noted that there is still a lot of work that has to be done within the Caribbean region, our continued dedication and aspirations as young leaders are just a few of the mechanisms that would assist with our target goal.
Life in advocacy can be challenging at times, but with adequate guidance and a positive approach, the target goal will be accomplished. I am motivated and propelled to my task at hand, which is assisting the young persons within my country on all issues.
I am Trinidad and Tobago, and by extension, the Caribbean region. Together as youth leaders, we can make a positive change. There is surely nothing for us without us.
