Need for young leaders who build others up: Mervyn

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Update: 1:02PM A FOUR-day National Student Leadership forum (NSLF) was recently held in Australia to support young people to be solid and vibrant leaders for life.

Fiji Youth advocate Broderick Mervyn was part of the forum as a group facilitator, which was held in Canberra along with Peni Kunikoro and Atelina Qalova who were the three Fijian delegates at this year's NSLF.

Mr Mervyn said the forum was an opportunity for the emerging generation to discuss the significance of faith and values as foundations for effective leadership. 

"Being a group facilitator has helped me grow professionally, spiritually, personally and relationally," he said.

"These are the areas that I think we overlook in our daily lives, so contributing to a forum that highlights these areas is refreshingly different.

"It has genuinely changed my outlook on life and I want to give back to the forum in some way, to ensure that this year's delegates have just as a life-changing experience as I did a year ago."

He said young people needed young leaders that build others up and "we cannot give to others without being affected positively ourselves".
