On Wednesday, as a part of Youth Week the Belize Youth Awards was held at the Bliss Centre for the Performing Arts. It is just one of the activities taking place to honor outstanding young people. We caught with one of the awardees this evening Gem Turner.
“Well, this is the Youth Minister’s award presented to me by the Department of Youth Services at the Belize National Youth Award. It’s really an honour to receive this award…I mean…it’s First Place! I have done many things in my community, at my church and I am currently the secretary of Belmopan Active Youth and I am really grateful to have received this award and thanks to God of course for giving me the strength to do everything I do, and Ms. Anna banner Guy, the President of Belmopan Active Youths and my family, my mom, everybody who supports e and my friends and all those who sent recommendations for me, a huge thank you”.
