Good luck to AYV Member Erin Gough

09 October 2012

The Ministry of Youth Development wishes all the best to AYV member and University of Canterbury third year law student Erin Gough who is a Youth award finalist in the New Zealand Attitude Awards.

The Attitude Awards celebrate people living with disability who are making the most of life as well as those who support them.

The eight awards include the Attitude ACC Supreme award, Sports Performer of the Year, Courage in Sport, Artistic Achievement, Youth, Spirit of Attitude, the Attitude ACC Employer award and the Making a Difference award. Winners will be announced at a gala event in Auckland on November 29.

Erin, 20, has cerebral palsy and is making significant contributions to improve her Christchurch community. Growing up in South Africa, which was transitioning from apartheid to a multi-racial democracy, and her personal challenges in a wheelchair have fuelled a desire for equality in the world.
