Asal Salikhova, the DJ-Model from Uzbekistan, and VIMA Model Awards finalist has been bestowed the VIMA-CHANGE STARTS WITH ME AWARD.
Asal becomes the first recipient of this new award title (previously known as the VIMA AWAKENING AWARD), which recognizes individuals who have unconditionally worked towards a cause or initiated and led a charitable project.
The award, sponsored by CHANGE STARTS WITH ME, a global youth empowerment and transformation platform, is recognizing Asal for her incredible and tireless fund raising efforts that was done for her friend, Alice, who was battling breast cancer.
In her own words
” It started in 2014 when my pregnant manager, Alice, who became my good friend/sister, found out she had breast cancer. The first thing i did i was I created a Facebook page which we called Fight For Alice, in an effort to create awareness to let people know we might needed funds for Alice to undergo the operation.
I created 3 different events to raise funds. Within 2 weeks of the shocking news about Alice, i organized my first ever charity event for her , which included live music band and fashion show. It was truly challenging because I had to do everything on my own. The good news was many people came forth and donated.
The second event which I organized together with Alice’s best friend, we did a combined fund raising for Alice and also for a baby girl named Alice also, who needed a brain operation within few month, and the family didn’t had funds. This time event was bigger. Local stars and bands and an auction.
The third event was organized by me after few months. I took this to a whole different level, organized in a hotel ballroom with a lot of international and famous people. We had live music, a fashion show, free food, arts and craft bazaar.
In total, for the 3 events combined and more we gathered about USD50,000 for Alice.
Of course this was all done with a help of my friends and also Alice’s family and colleagues.
But this love and care for this person made me do all this, her family was in shock but i reacted faster and i knew something had to be done quickly. I just couldnt bear to watch her suffer. And when i started doing all charity events, the ironic thing was I had never in my life ever done or been part of a charity event.
My friend left us in December 2015, but she is always in our hearts and I miss her so much.”
Asal will be presented with her Change Starts With Me Award soon, together with award winning musician Sam Systematic Seelan (for his amazing work bringing food to homeless people) and another musician that will be announced next week.
