POSITIVE ROLE MODEL AWARD FOR AGE –
Joshua Beckford is recognised internationally in over 90 countries for his extraordinary educational achievements. A 12-year-old child Prodigy who is diagnosed with Autism, Joshua has already achieved more than most neuro-typical people in the world. At 2 years old, he quickly mastered reading fluently using phonics and was speaking Japanese by the age of 3. At the age of 6 he became the youngest person in the world to study Philosophy and History at Oxford University, gaining a distinction in both subjects. Joshua enjoys fund-raising for three Autism Charities, one in the U.K and two in Africa, and campaigns to save the environment. Last year, he wrote and presented a Poem ‘Saving Mother Earth’ at the TED x International Conference in Vienna. Joshua also designs and delivers Power-Point presentations on Human Anatomy at Community fund-raising events to audiences ranging from 200 to 3,000 people.
