Mississauga Junior Citizen honoured by Lieutenant Governor

March 11, 2014

BURLINGTON — Justina Marianayagam, 17, of Mississauga, lives with fibromyalgia, a chronic wide spread pain syndrome which makes everyday tasks a challenge.

But that has never stopped her from reaching her goals in life.

She is committed to overcoming her own obstacle and continues to give back to others. She is now a Junior Citizen of the Year – honoured at an event in Toronto earlier this month, and presented with her award by David C. Onley, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario.

After being elected as student council president within at Streetsville Secondary School, she helped organize a school drive, collecting 751 pounds of food items for her local food bank.

She continues to volunteer at the food bank and also dedicates her spare time to a local homeless shelter, preparing and serving hot meals to those in need.

The Lieutenant Governor hosted the 32nd annual Ontario Junior Citizens of the Year Awards ceremony in his Suite at Queen’s Park, and Marianayagam joined 11 other outstanding youth from across Ontario. They were recognized in front of family and friends for their inspiring community involvement.

The Ontario Community Newspapers Association (OCNA) thanked corporate sponsors TD Bank Group and Direct Energy, as well its member newspapers for their continued commitment to recognize tomorrow’s leaders.
