I have been running Stay Strong for just over a year now and I was delighted when I found out I had been nominted for a Princess Diana Award. It did come as a suprise to me as Stay Strong was still in its early days, yet I was still very happy with the news.
I was then short listed a few weeks after been told I was nominated. Having done some research on the Princess Diana Award, I saw what an amazing achievement this was and how it would benefit my campaign as an Anti-Bullying Ambassador for the UK.
A few weeks after being told I was short listed, I got sent a letter which told me I had won the award and it was to be presented to me by the Mayor. It is still a shock to me now as I am now the Anti-Bullying Ambassador for the UK! :)
This award now gives me the ability to now drive forward my anti-bullying message, through schools and colleges.
