Press Release: February 2011
Carlene Firmin has prioritised young people for years.
At 27, she is now the youngest black woman to receive an MBE. She has also been listed as one of Britain's top 35 most powerful women under 35 by GLAMOUR Magazine.
GLAMOUR's Features Director, Corrie Jackson, said: "Carlene really impressed us with her dedication - and, in particular, the fact that she has been so instrumental at such a young age. The brilliant and imaginative way she has tackled gang-affected women and girls should be applauded."
