Diana Award Recipient Becomes Calabar Global Shapers Community Curator

The Diana Award, created to honor Diana, Princess of Wales, and sponsored by both of her sons, The Duke of Cambridge and The Duke of Sussex, is the most prestigious accolade a young person aged 9-25 can receive for their social action or humanitarian work.  It is given out by the charity of the same name.

Goodness Odey, 24, a young person from Calabar, Cross River State recently received this award for going above and beyond in her daily life to bring about and maintain positive change. She expressed joy on receiving the award, stating that this showed that her work was making a significant difference. In her own words: “I feel elated and pleasantly surprised, like a dream come true to receive this prestigious recognition of a lifetime. I feel valued, that the work I do is significant and it is making a difference, it is deserving of a global recognition. I feel highly motivated to continue my impact journey and inspire more young people to be positive change makers”.

Just within months of receiving this award, she became a curator for the global shapers’ community. The Global Shapers Community is a network of inspiring young people under the age of 30 working together to address local, regional, and global challenges. With more than 14,000 members, the Global Shapers Community spans 456 city-based hubs in 150 countries.

Goodness whose commitment to positively influencing her community through activism, research, and interventions on bolstering health systems, gender equality, and the growth of young people has been awarded with membership in the Global Shapers Community, where she’ll serve as curator from July 2022 to July 2023. Born out of the World Economic Forum.

As the Lead for Women in Leadership for “Global Health Focus Africa,” she mentors more than 50 young women in leadership, research writing, and publications in global peer-reviewed journals. In addition, Goodness actively worked to create the nation’s first youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health and rights policy in an effort to close the health equality gap in Africa. This will guarantee that the rights and needs of more than a million young people in the area will be served without restrictions. We celebrate Goodness Odey and look forward to exploring possible collaborations in the coming weeks.
