Tyana Murray-Davidson, one of our Level 3 Extended Dance Diploma students, was recently awarded The Diana Award.
Established in memory of the late Princess of Wales, The Diana Award was introduced to continue her legacy by recognising young people who go above and beyond in their local communities. It is one of the longest running awards for young people aged 9-25, and also one of the most prestigious they can receive.
It has sunk in that I’ve won the award, but I’m still shocked that I was able to be nominated and to win it. But I’m very happy that I did.
It seems that Tyana is quite the model young person; in addition to receiving The Diana Award, last year she was also nominated to be the Young Lord Mayor of City of London. She was voted into this role by fellow young people of the capital, who no doubt related to Tyana’s passion around equality, racism, ageism and women in sport. In this role, she has chaired the city Youth forum and has been involved in many activities and events with the current Lord Mayor.
Huge congratulations to Tyana on both of the above successes and long may they continue.
