WELCOME TO YOUR AWARD HOLDER NEWSLETTER_

This year marks our 20th Anniversary as an organisation, that’s 20 years of showcasing the amazing work young people are doing each and every day to serve their communities. To mark our anniversary, and celebrate our namesake, we are launching this special newsletter just for Diana Award Holders. It will have inspirational stories, updates on opportunities and resources to help grow your social action initiatives, as well as support your personal development.

A BIT OF INSPIRATION_

Every month we will be sharing something inspiring that might spark some joy in you. 

This month we are featuring 2017 Award Holder Amaan Ibrahim, who last year spoke on the Tedx stage. In his Ted Talk, he urges us to nurture the habit of listening, asking and clarifying, so that we can all stop being right and start being correct...
