• Stephanie Evans, Young Citizen of the Year, Northern Beaches Australia Day Awards 2021

Tuesday, 17 August 2021

Stephanie Evans isn’t your average 18-year-old. When Steph isn’t studying for her final year at school, she’s also running a charity educating school kids on protecting our marine life and environment.

At age 10, Steph founded the charity Seas of Change from her bedroom. Since then, her school friends Mel, Gloria and Thilara joined the charity, which raises funds and awareness by speaking at schools, talking at events and mentoring with other organisations around the globe.  

Steph was recognised as the Young Citizen of the Year for her amazing efforts in our Australia Day Awards this year.

Nominations are now open for next year’s Australia Day Awards – nominate an outstanding person you know today.
