Screen_Shot_2014-11-05_at_8.30.07_PMAs part of Youth Week being celebrated in municipalities across Belize, today the Orange Walk Youth Department hosted a Role Model Forum for students from both high schools. The aim was to give young persons the guidance, friendship and support needed through presentations from role models in the community. One such role model we spoke with was Olga Urbina Gough.

“The youth that are here which are different high schools of Orange Walk, somebody on their society to look up to, I am honored and humbled to have been asked by these groups to be a part of this panel and I think it is important that we talk to them about their experience, how e got to where we are and jut to inspire them to want to do better.”

“Though the dynamic presentations of the speaker we learn that you can be a leader no matter which area you come from whether young or old you have the ability to become a good and positive leader express positive things and guide anyone to become a better person in life.”

“It seems cliché but they are our future, it is important for them to know that they are important to know that society is focused on them and that we want them to excel in everything that they do so it is ultra-important to have this week.”

This year’s National Youth Week is being celebrated under the theme ‘We desire leaders becoming the change Belize needs’.
