Nicola Baker wins people’s choice award
LOCAL mum Nicola Baker (pictured) has dedicated her life’s work to raise awareness about moyamoya disease, and those efforts have been recognised at the AusMumpreneur Awards 2023.
Taking out the people’s choice nonprofit and social enterprise category, Moyamoya Australia founder Nicola said she was honoured to be named the winner and thanked everyone who voted for her.
“This was an opportunity to say the word ‘moymoya’ out loud in front of a room of people who haven’t heard of it before,” she said.
“I just want to say how grateful I am for the Far North Queensland and Tablelands communities because, without their support, I wouldn’t be able to do the things that I can do.
“Now, the awareness of this disease has grown.”
Julatten mum and author Crystal Leonardi was also at the awards ceremony.
