Diana Award Winner

19-year old Kyla Christie from Indonesia has been recognized with the highest accolade a young person ages 9-25 can achieve for social action or humanitarian efforts – The Diana Award. In the memory of lady Diana, Princess of Wales, the Award is given out by the charity of the same name and has the support of both her sons, The Duke of Cambridge and The Duke of Sussex. Kyla Christie uses her talent and passion for the performing arts to help overcome social issues within her community. At the age of 10, Kyla created ‘Sing-to-Build’, a non-profit which used her voice to generate funds for communities affected by natural disasters. Kyla raised more than $70,000 to help build an orphanage, rebuild homes, libraries, women’s centers, art centers and music centers in hard hit areas. (Tempo)
