Tabby Receives Queen’s Young Leader Award

We are delighted to announce that our founder and National Coordinator, Tabby Besley is one of the first ever recipients of the Queen’s Young Leader Award. She is the only New Zealander to receive the award and one of 60 winners selected from across the Commonwealth, after over 1800 nominations.

What does it mean: Tabby receives a trip to England in June 2015 where she will receive her award from the Queen at Buckingham Palace and take part in the residential part of a year-long online leadership course with the University of Cambridge. She gets a personal mentor for the year to support her work with InsideOUT and the opportunity to meet with relevant organisations and businesses in London. She also gets to meet 59 other incredible young people from around the Commonwealth who are doing amazing work in their countries.
