Neve Cusens has been awarded 2nd place in a nation-wide Justice Challenge run by GirlBoss.
The passionate Year 11 student’s project was one of more than 445 entries received from youth aged 16-21, each with a theme of “Law, Politics and Government”. Neve’s specific focus was Equity for Students. Outlining the issue she said, “Every day minorities across the world experience prejudice, racism, unfair comments and hate purely based on the colour of their skin. We as a community need to work together to unite as one and work towards abolishing these stereotypes, and create inclusivity for everyone in our communities.”
In her project, Neve outlined why she feels passionate about the topic, and shared her personal experiences of moving to New Zealand from South Africa. Her project also outlined suggestions for possible changes to help make all students feel included.
Well done Neve on a great achievement.
