Meet Trevis Belle – St. Kitts and Nevis one of the 2016 Queen’s Young Leaders
“From the streets of McKnight to the Buckingham Palace!” the single line that depicts the journey of Trevis Belle. Son of the Sweetest island in the Caribbean – St. Kitts, Trevis was adamant in changing the mindset and shaping a positive view on his little community of McKnight.
At a very young age, Trevis has always been involved in his community and joining different youth organizations such as the Boys’ Brigades, Church’s Youth Fellowship Groups, etc. He also held a special place for volunteering as he would go above and beyond to help with bake sales, clothing drives and different projects that would require volunteers.
As he grew older, he became aware of how persons viewed his community of McKnight – synonymous with crime, gangs, violence, poverty. He wanted to change that, he wanted persons outside of McKnight to know that his community has positivity and love flowing through its streets.
