Naven and Lee in New York, New York
Lee was awarded her Volunteer award at a lavish ceremony and both came home brimming with pride and achievement. The Leonard A. Lauder Volunteer of the Year Award is given globally for outstanding commitment to volunteerism that has made a significant impact on the community.
Lee an Estēe Lauder Account Executive, won her category for her work with the RP Moodley School for Disabled Children.
Lee now has a substantial donation from Estee Lauder to spend on her chosen charities. It is so awesome to see such selfless giving being rewarded. Keep up the great work Lee!
Despite being really apprehensive about the long flight and all the challenges that that posed for Naven, the couple had an amazing trip to New York. One of their observations was how wheelchair friendly the entire city is which is in stark contrast to SA. Naven has attended two EQ workshops, both of which were a challenge as the wheelchair facilities are minimal if existent at all.
Naven has also started training with a local wheelchair basket ball team – so watch this blog for more updates as I have no doubt that he will go on to achieve great things in this sporting arena.
