Latifah, from Uganda, agreed to join the H2OO Board of Directors at 19 years old because she believes that youth voices at the Director level ensures that youth can vote for what really works and against what does not work for youth, as she can directly express to the Board what it is that youth need.

Having youth on the Board also supports the mission and vision of the organization and is a step in staying true to why the organization was founded. Latifah strongly feels that allowing youth a Board of Director position is an empowerment opportunity providing them with insight into the organization and greater professional skill-building opportunities.

As a Director of H2OO, Latifah feels even more motivated and inspired to become a leader in this world and make positive change in an important position, including as a future policy maker.
