In 2014, the Naz Bokhari Award was awarded to Tre Johnson by Imran Sanaullah, the inaugural Naz Bokhari Award winner. Tre was successful in achieving a place at Exeter University to study Economics.
In his acceptance speech, a surprised Tre Johnson said:
“I am honour to receive this year’s award. There were many worthy nominations this year and I am over the moon to win. I am looking forward to starting my degree and would like to thank my teachers and family for all their support.”
Imran Sanaullah said:
“A part of the Naz Legacy Foundation is to open up new doors for the winner of the Naz Bokhari Award and other young people. It is important that you take up every opportunity presented to you, and that you never count yourself out. You can only limit yourself and don’t let anyone limit you.”
Jonathan Freeman, National Director of HRH Prince of Wales’ Mosaic initiative told Tre:
“You have achieved significant success in your academic studies, securing a fantastic three A* grades in your A2 examinations. To have worked so hard to achieve these awards, securing yourself a place at Exeter University to read Economics, is remarkable. The Naz Bokhari Award is a prestigious one and it is clear that you are most worthy winner. I am sure that we will hear of Tre Johnson for many years to come! Well done!”
