Thiruvananthapuram: Two school children from Kerala have been chosen to attend a summer camp to be held in Fukuoka, Japan, in July. They are Nayanika Maya Jayapra-kash, a fifth grader of St. Thomas Residential Sch-ool here, and Yohan Jose-ph Abraham, a fifth grader at Pallikoodam, Kott-ayam.

They have been selected as junior ambassadors from India to participate in the 10-day fully paid ‘Bridge summer camp 2019’ of the Junior Chamber International Asia Pacific Children's Convention (JCI APCC).

 

JCI is a non-governmental fraternal organisation of people aged between 18 and 40 and having members from 124 countries. Junior ambassador is chosen from children aged between 10 and 11, whose parents are also active in JCI activities. The children should excel in academics as well as extracurricular activities.

Nayanika, 10, is one of the eight junior ambassadors from the country. “I can meet people from different countries of Asia and Pacific region which will help me further excel in various activities and academics. I will stay with a host families in Japan as parents will not be allowed in the trip,” Nayanika, a member of JCI Thiruvananthapur-am Zone XXII and a resident of Sasthamangalam, told DC.

 

She is the daughter of LIC development officer R. Jayprakash and Maya Nair. Her elder brother, Bharat Govind, is the president of Thiruvananthapuram chapter.

Yohan Joseph Abraham is the son of Robin Abraham and Merin Babu Mathews. After the camp, the two students will attend the national conference of JCI in Nagpur.
