Zonta Club of Brisbane presents Sophie Nakamura as its 2022 Young Women in Public Affairs Awardee
The Zonta Club of Brisbane, Australia, recently selected Sophie Nakamura as its 2022 Young Women in Public Affairs Award recipient, who has demonstrated how she is progressing Zonta's goals in her community.
A student at Griffith University in Brisbane, Sophie has a range of interests outside of her law and international relations studies, particularly sustainability. With her schoolmates, she started a project at the university called Suited Students Clothing Library, which collects donations to provide clothing to students who need suitable outfits for job interviews and day-to-day life. She was also the 2020 National Australian Winner of the Future Leaders Future Justice Award.
Sophie is one of more than 300 women and girls the club has supported over the past 20 years with a club award or a Zonta International award. Empowering women and girls through education has long been a tenet for this club, and it will continue to be as they work to deliver on the goal of Zonta to Build a Better World for Women and Girls.
