G(irls)20 Delegate, United Kingdom
Megumi is an intern at KPMG financial service firm, while waiting to start at Oxford University. She was a Young Challenger at the Global Social Business Summit in 2011 and upon her return identified key social business action plans within her company, and now sits on the development meetings with KPMG key figures. She has served in many roles on the Sri Lanka Model United Nations Commission, from chair to representative for the status of women and in 2010 achieved the Global Young Leader’s Award at the Global Scholars and Leaders’ Summit in Singapore. Megumi wholly believes that social business is commercially viable and makes perfect economic sense to break the chain of aid and charity dependency cultures that tend to prevail in poor communities. With this newfound economic liberation, women will have a stronger voice and greater influence politically that will help lift themselves, their families and communities out of extreme poverty.
