“Ms Frederick was easily at the top of our list when we considered possible speakers for our inaugural convention, “said one of the organizers.
“She is not only a youth but a female and possesses the right experiences to endear, engage and encourage our youths to strive for enhanced self-development and the development of the country. So we were ecstatic when she accepted our invitation,” the Organizing Committee Member concluded.
Ms Frederick expressed her delight in receiving the invitation and indicated her enthusiasm regarding her presentation to the youths of the federation.
The Attorney and NDP Candidate said “I look forward to meeting and speaking with the young people who are striving to change the way politics works in St. Kitts-Nevis and the Caribbean. The job isn’t easy but I know that our youth have what it takes to shake up the establishment and make meaningful change for the betterment of their community and nation.”
