Being nominated for the Child of the Year award was a huge honour.
The Deputy Headteacher of my primary school, St Martin’s, decided to nominate me, as I had Type 1 Diabetes and also had been helping a younger student at my school who also had Type 1 diabetes. The award ceremony took place at Hotel De France, and the Variety Club organised a really enjoyable show and a delicious lunch. When I won the award, I was amazed and, of course, extremely pleased! I also felt extremely humbled after meeting lots of other truly brave, courageous children.
