A 2021 award winner is Sarah Alsaidi. Alsaidi "was instrumental in developing and facilitating the Audacious Young Women of Action (AYWA) program for the Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim and South Asian (AMEMSA) girls and young women at the Arab-American Family Support Center (AAFSC) in New York City.

Dr. Alsaidi was adept at navigating challenging conversations and empowering AAFSC’s young women through the programming that she developed and facilitated. Dr. Alsaidi’s work has been instrumental in uplifting and supporting Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, and South Asian (AMEMSA) young women through her practice and application of psychology.”
