'Princess Diana inspired me to tackle the bullies'
What’s the point in staring – we ALL have our differences. It’s about what’s on the inside
– Nicholas on beating the bullies
Eleven-year-old Nicholas Nikiforou has endured bullying most of his young life, having been born with a large congenital melanocytic nevus on his face.
Determined that no one should ever have to feel the way he did, he took it upon himself to become an anti-bullying ambassador and was last night awarded with the Diana Legacy award at St James’ Palace.
Nicholas considers Princess Diana his role model and lives by her quote ‘do what your heart tells you’ - it was, then, perhaps a fitting tribute to be presented with his award by her two sons, Prince William and Harry.
A rather excited Nicholas and his Mum Melanie join us to share their memories of a very special evening.
