Congratulations to awarded broadcaster, radio and TV anchor Karen Davila for having been chosen as one of the Young Global Leaders for 2010 by the World Economic Forum. WEF is a non-profit organization based in Switzerland which gathers leaders of states and industries in a forum to tackle the world’s most important issues.

As one of the awardees, Karen will join the 2010 World Economic Forum with other honorees the world over. Among big names to grace the forum are tennis player Roger Federer, singer Wyclef Jean, and the founders of Internet hubs Twitter, Google, and YouTube.

Karen is one of only three Filipinos who made it to the list. The others are micro-financing maven Dennis Eclarin of Hometown Corp. and information technology trailblazer Winston Damarillo of Global Gateway Innovation Exchange.

By the way, Karen anchors “TV Patrol World” and “The Correspondents” on ABS-CBN, “Headstart with Karen Davila” on ANC, and “Pasada Sais Trenta” on radio station DZMM.

With her involvement with World Vision, Karen was in the past named as one of the Ten Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) by the Junior Chamber International Philippines (JCI) and was cited as being able to “marshal her beauty, talent, and drive in using television and radio as powerful tools for education and instruments for change.”
