Back in February, Sexpression and one of our own; the lovely Lauren Taylor from KCL, found out that we had been nominated at the Brook Sexual Health Awards! Lauren was nominated for the JLS Young Person of the Year Award due to her exponential enthusiasm for all things Sexpression, and for her work with SXT. Sexpression:UK were nominated for the Pamela Sheridan Young People’s Project of the Year.
Naturally we were very excited to be invited to such an event, let alone nominated!! I expressed my excitement on Facebook to the confusion of my friends (see below).
Unsurprisingly there was no mention of Herpes and sadly we didn’t win any awards, the calibre of our fellow nominees was incredible! There was no room for doom and gloom; we were in a stunning building full (and I mean full) of people as passionate about comprehensive sexuality education as we are! Ellen and I, along with Lauren and Kaliane had a wonderful evening speaking to some truly inspirational individuals. We spoke with some big companies and some influential professionals with the aim to expand our network further!
Next year, we hope that our work, and your work will continue to be recognised and that the next generation of Sexpressioners can attend the awards in 2014!
