MEET THE YOUNG JUDGES

It’s that time of the year again, The Diana Award judging period. We wanted to kick off by introducing our 2020 cohort of Young Judges. We had an overwhelming number of applications and selected just 15 volunteers to sit on the judging panel for the 2020 Diana Award. These young people from all over the world will take on the responsibility of selecting this year’s incredible Diana Award recipients.

This last month we’ve heard from three amazing Diana Award recipients who have shared their stories with us. You can hear from Brandon from the U.S. who has provided life-changing experiences and funding for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, Madhav from India who created and deployed 8000 portable, point-of-use water purification devices bringing safe and useable water access to 40,000 people in Tanzania and Ezara-Mai who is a committed and tireless advocate for young people who believes that every young patient should have a voice.

RESOURCES_

With more of us at home and turning to the internet, we want to focus this month on staying safe online and more specifically looking at the social networking app Houseparty.

Houseparty has been downloaded millions of times in the past few weeks and so we have put together a short resource to ensure you are staying safe while having fun.

We know that you might be feeling anxious or fearful right now, but we want you to know that you’re not alone. Remember we are all in this together. I had a moment earlier this week when I felt anxious and fearful and there is one video that really helped me.

I am sharing it here in the hope that it might help you too.
