Prince of Wales Secondary School
Violet Richardson Award (2021) Recipient
I would like to thank Soroptimist International of Vancouver for the Violet Richardson Award.
As the President of Dare to Care at my school, I help raise awareness and funds for youth experiencing homelessness in Vancouver. I am also the Founder and Chair of the Youth-to-Youth Wellness Initiative, where I organize webinars with licensed health professionals for youth aged 13-17 to learn about mental health. Through these initiatives, I have been able to devote my time to something I’m passionate about: helping youth in need.
Being a recipient of the Violet Richardson Award has given me the confidence to continue pursuing my passion. Thank you, Soroptomist, for giving women and girls the resources and opportunities to reach their full potential.
