Inspirational stories and testimonials from those who have been previously involved in the rock star awards
Jemma is a classic example of what the Rock Star Awards can do to help and further an individual to pursue their dreams:
Another fantastic winner is Nathaniel Hawley who won 'Inspirational Star of the Future' in 2014 and since then has gone on to do some incredible things.. here is a few extracts from his open letter and a short video from him as well:
"I originally came to Los Llanitos (the community that I was staying in) with the good natured yet one sided intention to help these more in need then myself yet I have found that I had just as much to learn from the local Nicaraguans as they did from me..
"I have learnt that Instead of drawing away when times get hard it is best to come together and stand strong. I never expected to befriend everyone in my group but in truth I feel that I have, but more so then friends I have gained 11 new family members.
From this trip, which would never of been possible with out your help, I feel that I really have changed as a person for the better. I know understand the world around me far better, and the impact that my day-to-day life on it can have. I also understand more then ever how simple acts can have the biggest effect and lastly that we really are just one world, all the things that stops the world for working as one are just constructs that we as people have made for are selves.
Once again I really would like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have not only helped change the life of an entire village but also my own. I look forward to staying in contact and helping you if you ever need it in the future."
