WordStorm PR it proud to be representing the Top Blokes Foundation and its founder, Melissa Abu-Gazaleh who has just been named as the 2016 NSW Young Australian of the Year for her commitment to youth work.
At the age of 19 Melissa Abu-Gazaleh felt a strong need to do something to address the disproportionate number of young men suffering from mental illness and involved in violent crimes and other anti-social behaviour. She established the Top Blokes Foundation to help empower males aged 14-24 and reduce the risk-taking behaviours common to this demographic.
Some 10 years into its operation, Top Blokes CEO Melissa helps thousands of young men each year through mentoring programs and she oversees a team of 14 people passionate about youth mentoring.
WordStorm PR’s managing director, Monica Rosenfeld is excited to be representing such a passionate advocate for youth.

Melissa is so dedicated to helping others, we’re so pleased to see her recognised by winning the 2016 NSW Young Australian of the Year award.”
