Celebrating Wolverhampton’s Young Citizens of the Year

It was a pleasure to welcome Imane Sbihi and Eva Abley – the joint winners of the 2023 Wolverhampton Young Citizens Award in the 13 – 18 age group – to our meeting on Monday.

Imane is an asylum seeker who escaped from Morocco and since settling in Wolverhampton has immersed herself in voluntary work. Eva, who has cerebral palsy uses comedy to inspire others to cope with disability and came fifth in Britain’s Got Talent.

In all ten young Wulfrunians were recognised for their outstanding community service at this year’s Wolverhampton Young Citizens of the Year Rotary Awards Ceremony – Eva Abley, Luis Enache, Harmon Kambo, Gabriella McKenzie, Dirran Mehta, Imane Sbihi, Shawna Gibbs, Karolina Jaks, Chloe Lambert and Alethea Parsons.

The Young Citizen Awards – which were devised by the City’s Rotary Clubs – are now in their tenth year and celebrate young people aged between 13 and 18 and between 19 and 25 who live, study or work within the Wolverhampton boundary and whose personal courage, care for others, achievement or contribution to the community deserves to be recognised.
