Liat Ziegler

Liat was the winner of the Gandel Young Leader Award 2014 (NSW). After completing the Stand Up ABC program, Liat was inspired to help asylum seekers. She initiated contact via letter writing with a young girl who was being detained on Manus Island. Through building a pen-pal relationship, she learnt about the conditions her friend was living in on Manus Island, with out much to play with and no toys. Following this, Liat arranged a toy drive at her school, Mt Sinai. Liat held a fundraising campaign in order to post the hundreds of toys to Manus Island. We are very proud of Liat and her incredible effort and initiative!
