21-year-old Brighton Kaoma will be awarded the Queen of England’s Young Leader Award for his leadership skills and efforts to change his community.  He is currently a youth reporter for the Children’s Radio Foundation of South Africa, Zambia’s United Nations International Children’s Education Fund (UNICEF) Climate Change ambassador, and the co-founder of Agents of Change foundation.

Brighton is one of the first two Zambians (out of 60 exception young leaders in the Commonwealth) to receive this prestigious award.

“I believe in using radio and low-cost communication technologies to educate young people.” says Brighton.

The Queen’s Young Leader Award aims to recognise exceptional people aged 18-29, who are taking the lead in their communities and using their skills to transform lives.
