I have recently been nominated by a close friend of mine for the national diversity award – as a positive role model within the LGBT+ community.
The National Diversity Awards – a prestigious black tie event, which celebrates the excellent achievements of grass- root communities that tackle the issues in today’s society, giving them recognition for their dedication and hard work.
The one thing that I love about the national diversity award’s is that they focus on a range of things like LGBT, Gender, Age, Disability and religion. A range of role models, charities, celebrities and community hero’s come together for this award to celebrate the positive changes that have been made by each individual.
To be shortlisted for this award people need to vote for the individual and highlight why they are voting for them so that the panel of judges can understand why the individual may deserve this award.
Being a teenager from a large city in South Wales, I never get taken seriously within the work I carry out. To be shortlisted for this award can enable me to reach out to a wider audience across the whole of the UK and help Transgender and LGB+ individuals get the equality that they deserve.
Thank you for all of the support everybody has given me recently, it means the world to me and I cannot thank you all enough x
