Two talented University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI) students are off to Trinidad and Tobago to represent at the 15th Regional Youth Parliament.

Reon Porter and Leah Robinson will be flying the flag for the Cayman Islands at the Youth Parliament tomorrow (July 17).

The Youth Parliament is organised as a part of the 44th annual conference of the Caribbean, Americas and Atlantic Region of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA), held this year from July 14 to July 19.

Youth participants will debate the topic: 'Securing our borders to mitigate the effects of crime whilst striving to meet our Humanitarian Obligations'.

Both Reon and Leah were avid participants in the recent Youth Parliament conducted by the Cayman Islands Branch of the CPA on Commonwealth Day, March 12.
 
The duo, who have been hard at work preparing for their presentations, leave today for Trinidad for the event in the Parliament Chamber in Port-of-Spain.

They say they are both excited and very proud to represent the Cayman Islands at the regional meet.
