Her song explores important human rights issues affecting people in our world today.

Jodie was given a special ‘Commendation’ for her excellent scaled down instillation ‘People – Not Pavement’ in relation to this year’s Youthreach-ICCL Human Rights Competition. The standard was extremely high and there was a great selection of projects submitted.
