This event is long overdue and needs to be highlighted. There’s not a lot of credit going where credit is due when it comes to young people. Recognising something a young person has done goes a long way and to be able to shine a beacon of light on them is great.
The BLAC Awards, I must first say, I love what you are doing & stand for!
I love your movement.
