Victorian Young Achiever Awards

"Being involved in the community dedicating my life's work to helping all ages on the autism spectrum is truly one of the most rewarding experiences. The Young Victorian Achiever Awards is about recognising dedicated individuals in their particular field of expertise. I was very honoured to receive a nomination and had no idea that I would end up winning this year for the category Health & Wellness.

As someone who has overcome many difficulties associated with Autism + Asperger's. I am so proud that through keeping good health and wellness physically and mentally myself throughout life that it has not only turned into my career. It has been my ultimate true success in life.

I encourage all young Australians to reach out to an event such as the young Victorian achiever awards to showcase your hard passionate work and to be recognised for your achievements to assist you further in life.

Thank you to the young Victorian achiever awards for recognising my work and success as an individual on the Autism Spectrum."

“I was humbled to receive this award when I saw all the wonderful scientific and community contributions of the other finalists in this category. This award has been a fantastic opportunity to raise the profile of my science and my public engagement work in the Victorian community. It has already given me the opportunity to further promote the importance of vaccination with a radio guest appearance on 3RRR’s Einstein a go-go . I would strongly encourage other young Victorian Scientists to apply"
