Holly is truly an inspirational person. She was the sports champion at her primary school, highly respected by all of her peers and teachers as being deserving of the accolade, displaying good sportsmanship and an eagerness to make friends of everyone. Her friendship with a disabled friend has encouraged that friend to overcome many of the barriers which prevented progress in her life. She has been sensitive to those issues which affect less able people and has helped her friend overcome these while not jumping in and sorting the issues out for her but rather encouraging her friend to become confident and outgoing and striving for her own success. Her friend is now becoming an inspirational person in her own right, in spite of her health challenges and this is largely due to Holly's encouragement and enlightened approach to helping her break through the barriers which sapped her confidence and made her introverted. Holly continues to strive for excellence and is never deflected from including everyone in that pursuit. Holly is now in her first year at secondary school and has already made her mark there in sport and in academic subjects. She is shortly to receive a gold award in her first year, reflecting the effort she applies to education and sport and her friends look upon her as a broker of peace amongst them, a source of wisdom, and an ally in times of trouble. I nominate Holly so that she can have a well deserved moment to shine and further inspire her peers.
