2020 Young Citizen of the Year recipient
I am Monu Chamlagai. I was born and raised in a Bhutanese refugee camp in Nepal and came to Australia in 2011. I am currently in the honours program studying psychology at the University of Adelaide. I have been volunteering at the city of Salisbury since 2016 and continuing to do so. I won 2 awards in 2020 including the young citizen of the year and the channel 7news young achievers award, both for the services to the community. I believe that we all have power to change the world whether it is big or small and therefore we can give back to the communities in different ways.
