Auckland Quota Community Champion Award 2017

Members of Quota International of Auckland are proud to announce the Award of this year’s Community Champion Award to Fiona Curran.

Fiona is a Year 10 student at Selwyn College and has Tourette’s syndrome. Fiona has been very open about her condition and is determined to succeed and try her best. She volunteers at the Totara Learning Centre, a class of students with disabilities and has formed strong relationships with two of the most disabled students.

Fiona endures many difficulties with her condition but has not allowed her disability to stop her from achieving her goals. With her positive attitude she has become an inspiration and role model to staff and students at her school.
We wish her every success in her future endeavours.

Quota Community Champion Award

The Quota Community Champion Award honours young women who have faced difficulties in their lives and succeeded.

They are people who have met the challenges of daily life ‘head on’ and inspire others by their example.

By their positive attitude and efforts, they have become an inspiration to others in their community.

The goal of the award, in addition to honouring a disadvantaged person, is to help Quota members and members of their community to develop positive and constructive attitudes towards disadvantaged persons and to gain a better understanding of their needs.

The Award is open to young women aged 20 and under who have a physical, intellectual or social disadvantage.

Nominations must be received by 2nd June 2017
