There aren’t really the words to describe how much the Highly Commended award for Outstanding Achievement means to me. I took on the role of Editor in probably the worst circumstances imaginable; our editor was suspended, our papers had been seized and morale was pretty low among the team. Running the paper under those conditions would have been impossible without the help of the amazing team at The Badger, as well as the¬†care and support of friends and family. They believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself and I am so grateful for that.

My award tonight is as much theirs as it is mine.
