Cool lords: Lord Mayor Sally Capp and Junior Lord Mayor of Melbourne Leonie Chen

Don't stop improving, Melbourne. That's the call from Junior Lord Mayor Leonie Chen.

The Kensington Primary School student edged out a strong field of finalists to win the gold chains.

Her Worship's big-ticket policy? A fairer, inclusive and safer community.

"My idea is to stop racism, sexism and have a city with more equal rights and greater accessibility for people with disabilities," Leonie says.

We need to continuously improve for Melbourne to reclaim its No 1 World's Most Liveable City title, she says.
