"I take this as a mission that has been assigned to me by the organization," said Yordanka Leyva Perez, who was chosen as the only delegate from the mining municipality of Moa, to the 17th World Festival of Youth and Students to be held in South Africa from December 13 to 21.

During a meeting to present her as delegate before hundreds of colleagues from the Factory Commandante Ernesto Che Guevara, where she works, Leyva thanked the election and said that any young people from the factory could represent the nickel workers in such important meeting.

The 17th World Festival of Youth and Students will be dedicated this year to two universal figures: the Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz and the South African leader Nelson Mandela.

The 30-year-old Yordanka Leyva Perez was graduated in 2003 as mechanical engineer in the Mining Institute "Dr. Antonio Nez Jimnez" of Moa, in the northeastern region of Holguin, and has been working for seven years in the Ernesto Che Guevara nickel factory, as the specialist in the Maintenance Unit’s Capital Repair Group.

She is member of the Young Communist League since 2001.
