Congratulations to our new Ambassador Kieron Lee
I am pleased to announce that Kieron Lee is now joining the Anna Kennedy Online UK Autism Charity family as one of our Ambassadors. It has been a pleasure to watch Kieron grow over the years with his confidence and as an artist.
He will make a fantastic role model joining my team especially after I watched him at the launch of Kalaset Records.
Kieron was hosting and has been preparing for many months and coordinating his very own show made up of amazing students showcasing their talent on stage at South and City College Birmingham.
Congratulations Kieron and welcome.

Donna Drew, Head of School Creative Arts shared: “This is a fantastic opportunity for Kieron and we are very proud of his achievements. He will be an excellent ambassador for the charity. Kieran has represented South & City College Birmingham college at numerous events. He is supportive and a mentor to his peers and will continue to be in his new role”.
‘I met the wonderful Anna and team back in 2016 whilst we were working on our superb charity album “Building Bridges”, which was a significant and memorable time in my life. Since then, I have continued to support and work with the charity.
Anna and all the team have played a huge part in shaping the person I have become today, and I could not be more thankful for the opportunities that have been given to me through Anna Kennedy Online, and their amazing work and I feel so proud to be a part of the AKO family. I am aware of the progress and huge difference that I have made.
If I can do it, you can too! Never give up. I am now on top of the world with an amazing new friend group, in the process of finalising my EP ready for release in the Summer (Keep your eyes peeled) and I am ready to start university next year, where I will be working towards achieving my degree in Popular Music.
I would like to encourage everyone to spread love and positivity in a world that really needs it. Especially right now. I also ask that you try to be the best advocate for mental health that you possibly can be. Be super thankful for your neighbours, thankful for your friends and family. Most importantly be thankful for yourself and know that you have huge value. Try to appreciate the little things in life as much as you can even when you feel like it is impossible. Stay strong. Reach out when you need it. You are not alone. ‘
