Shany Hagan, a resident of York, has recently been named as a nominee for the 2024 Women Changing the World Awards. These prestigious awards, presented by Sarah, Duchess of York, and Dr. Tererai Trent, renowned as Oprah Winfrey’s esteemed guest, aim to honor and celebrate women who have made remarkable strides in various fields such as sustainability, humanitarian work, leadership, advocacy, technology, product development, education, health, and innovation.

The mission behind these awards is to inspire individuals worldwide to unite and work towards a brighter future. Sarah, Duchess of York, and Dr. Tererai Trent emphasize the importance of amplifying the voices of women whose contributions are often overlooked, yet invaluable. Their vision extends beyond conventional recognition to encourage others to create positive change, regardless of scale.

In the words of Sarah, Duchess of York, “We aim to give voice to silent whispers. We want to lift women all over the world and tell their stories.” Dr. Tererai Trent echoes this sentiment, stating, “Women hold the ideas and leadership to heal the world. We are strong already, but together we are stronger.”

Shany Hagan’s nomination exemplifies the spirit of these awards. As a single mother from York who regained her eyesight four years ago, she has dedicated herself to helping those in need. Shany has supported over 60 charities and individuals by donating her artwork to charity auctions. Her commitment to making a difference serves as an inspiration for others to follow their calling and contribute positively to society.

Shany emphasizes the importance of kindness and helping others, stating, “Try to help as many people as possible and be kind to everyone.”

The winners of the 2024 Women Changing the World Awards will be announced at a prestigious event in London scheduled for May. This event promises to be a celebration of the remarkable achievements of women like Shany Hagan who are making a difference and inspiring positive change in the world.
