Dr Amina Wakefield, CEO of Cambridge Worldwide Academy commented: “I feel immense pride for myself and my organization as we continue to be recognized for the award winning work that we do in education and trade in the Commonwealth countries and globally. It is humbling that out of the 56 Commonwealth nations that make up 2.5 billion of the world’s population, we have been selected to be showcased as one of the Commonwealth’s leaders in education and international trade.”
