Congratulations to Krushnadevsinh Ravalji, or Kano, for winning the 2022 VicHealth Future Changemaker Award.
VicHealth's new and exciting Future Changemaker Award was supported by the AHPA Vic-Tas Branch.
Kano is an independent youth advocate, working closely with young people from diverse backgrounds to promote inclusion, physical activity and physical health. A true changemaker!
"Hi everyone, my name is Krushnadevsinh, or 'Kano', and I've just been awarded the 'Future Changemaker Award' in partnership with VicHealth and the Australian Health Promotion Association. I'm very happy to have won this award, and it makes me very proud of the hard work that I've been putting in for the past couple of years. And as a young person, it's great to get that recognition. As an independent sometimes we have these big organisations that do a lot of work, but I think we have so many amazing young people sacrificing their time and fighting for change. Change is a long journey and it doesn't happen overnight, and it's the little steps that need to be acknowledged along the way. I'm so grateful for the Australian Health Promotion Association for promoting this award and supporting young people like myself to get out there, to get recognised, and feel like it's not just me fighting against the world, there's a whole lot of other people alongside us."
