KIDZUCATE:OUR STORY

Sian Williams

 

 

Sian Williams -

Founder and Ambassador of Kidzucate

 

In 2012, at 6 years of age, Sian Williams founded Kidzucate. Also known as “The Kidzucate Kid”, Sian felt inspired to start Kidzucate when she suffered bullying at school because of her stutter. Sian refused to become another statistic of bullying and found a fun, kid-friendly solution to her problem.

 

Kidzucate kicked off with Sian using YouTube to present her educational videos, teaching kids how to be better kids. Sian’s vision was to not just talk about bullying but to mentor children her age as she believed kids learn better through kids. When Sian is inspired, she speaks out through her YouTube videos and gives tips and advice on things which have happened in her and her friends’ lives. Sian’s initiative has a huge impact on other children. They can relate to the issues raised by Sian and respond positively towards her work and mission.

 

Sian also inspires adults, receiving more and more acknowledgement and support from diverse media outlets and recognition through awards both nationally and internationally.

 

In 2014, Sian was invited by the Youth for Human Rights to attend their Youth Summit in Brussels, Belgium to represent Australia. She was the youngest delegate in the world to attend the Summit. She was awarded the Human Rights Hero Award – three months before she turned 8.  She is the youngest person to ever receive this prestigious award. Sian gave a 15-minute speech to the audience of 300 people.
