In the latest issue of the Sister Islands Newsletter, the community is introduced to three impressive and motivated young individuals making positive impacts across Anegada, Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyke. 

From Anegada, 22-year-old Anjali Levons is being recognized as an emerging youth leader. A graduate of the Claudia Creque Educational Centre, Levons currently works part-time at the Anegada Community Library while pursuing an online business management degree at Monroe College with a focus on accounting. Her long-term goal is to become an accountant. Levons is described as friendly with diverse interests including cooking, singing, babysitting and dancing.

The island of Virgin Gorda’s featured youth is 19-year-old Ivana Todman, who recently graduated from the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College in St. Lucia with an associate’s degree in sustainable business innovation and entrepreneurship. With hobbies ranging from cooking and traveling to interior and graphic design, Todman currently works as a sales clerk while aspiring to further her education and make meaningful community contributions.  

On Jost Van Dyke, emerging entrepreneur Christopher Robinson is in the spotlight for his JVD Island Deliveries venture transporting goods to locals and tourists on land and by water. The young business owner believes “being a part of a community involves being productive in ways to make it better.” Robinson encourages others to be creative and believe in themselves while maintaining a positive mindset. When not working, he enjoys planting and gardening.
