New West secondary grad Ceilidh Millar, 19, was recently named for the Top 20 Under 20 Awards, an RBC-sponsored program run by the charitable organization Youth in Motion.

The awards recognize youth across the country who embody leadership, innovation and achievement.

Millar educates young people on the issue of bullying and has trained over 100 youth leaders in peer advocacy through bullying prevention campaigns in an attempt to stop the problem at the source.

Her campaigns show students how to create caring and compassionate environments, and how to speak up when bullying occurs.

Ceilidh is also the founder of End Bullying Through Peer Advocacy.
