Alexandra Seal

South Australia's Young Citizen of the Year 2024

Alexandra is a dedicated and passionate advocate for social justice, community service and environmental sustainability, demonstrating active citizenship and enhancement of community life through various platforms, both within and without her school.

Actively engaged in volunteering within the Loreto School, Alexandra is a member of the Peace and Justice Group, the Environment Committee, and is Chair of the Loreto UN. She has been involved in these committees’ advocacy and fundraising, raising funds for the Hutt Street Centre and taking part in tree planting in Victoria Park. Within her school, Alexandra has led many initiatives in support of the environment such as implementing solar panels, recycling programs and sustainable packaging.

Advocating and raising awareness for various social causes to help the disadvantaged in the local community, Alexandra donates her own time, money and resources. Through her business, Six Spaces, she donates all profits from jewellery sales to a range of charities.  Using her creative skills, Alexandra created a compelling video advocating for girls’ rights as part of the Mind the Gap movement for UN women.

Through her involvement with the Governor’s Leadership Foundation, Alexandra engaged with the elderly residents at Southern Cross Care, offering companionship and creating resources to guide nursing homes in fostering intergenerational connections. A participant in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, she has been the recipient of the Steele and Cooper Award, won the Premier’s ANZAC Spirit Prize as well as awards within her school community. However, Alexandra seeks only to help others and the environment, not recognition or awards.
