Following her debut in the United Nations last month, where she made her mark among several world leaders on the issue of climate change, and its effect on the education of children in low level areas of the Pacific Region, Zuriel has slowly begun to build a powerful coalition of female world leaders.
She has just met with her 23rd world leader - the President of Malta - Her Excellency Mary Louise Preca, to discuss a whole range of issues, opportunities, and values in developing a strong education advocacy framework for Girls across the globe. Zuriels schedules over the next few weeks would include a meeting with another female world leader, as she expands her network of female Presidents - one that hopefully in the near future, would include a President Hillary Clinton of the United States.
In the past, she met one-on-one with the President of Malawi - Joyce Banda, while in office, as well as Prime Minister Portia Miller of Jamaica, while in office, and the President of Liberia - still in office, all of whom she manages to schedule a close touch with. Zuriel has also presented her annual DUSUSU Awards since 2014 to African First Ladies in recognition of their work in the areas of Girls Education and Gender Development. Recipients so far including the First Ladies of Tanzania, Kenya and Namibia.
It is because of these and other reasons that this African teen is being referred to as perhaps - the Worlds Most Powerful Girl.
