The award, which was presented at the City of Kwinana’s Australia Day function, comes hot on the heels of Shaquille’s recent finalist position in the WA Youth Awards – Cultural Endeavours category.

“We’re proud to have such a talented young performer in our midst and we know he will continue to be a great role model for his peers.”
