Just before Christmas I was extremely humbled to find out that I was one of the winners of the Freelancer Awards 2020 (Covid Edition)!
YunoJuno (who created the Freelancer Awards, or Sweet FA as they call it), had an overwhelming response to this years event. The previous year they had received around 6000 votes in total, this year they received 6000 votes in 48 hours!
This year they were celebrating freelancers who had been using their skills to help others during the pandemic. I couldn’t believe it when I found out I had made the finalist list, let alone to find out that I had won an award! I was nominated for my work in creating Supportsmouth, which is a project dear to my heart; the aim of which is to support local businesses to Portsmouth by keeping everyone up to date on which services are still available.
A huge thank you goes out to my fiance for nominating me as well as helping me keep the site up to date, to best friends Nathan & Karl for supporting and contributing to Supportsmouth right from the start. And of course a huge thank you to all the lovely people who voted for me. I am truly touched and it was amazing to get some good news after what I think we can all agree has been a shocker of a year. So thank you all very much for that very uplifting news
I was interviewed by YunoJuno about Supportsmouth, as well as my work as a freelancer, which you can read about here. There’s also a short video where you can see my reaction when they told me I’d won!
