This October, Little Voice was nominated for the Ottawa Social Impact Awards!
The Ottawa Social Impact Awards are recognizing and celebrating the leaders in our community who are making a positive social impact through innovative, collaborative, and scalable initiatives and enterprises. A partnership between Impact Hub Ottawa and the City of Ottawa, the inaugural Awards seek to:
- Highlight Ottawa-based community initiatives and social enterprises that have significant potential for growth and lasting impact;
- Emphasize the power of the collective rather than the individual; and
- Recognize social innovation in our community that is turning the status quo upside down.
Today, Little Voice is very excited to not only share this nomination with all of you but a special feature with CBC Ottawa on Our #Ottawa.
This interview certainly helped both Samantha and I realize how far we’ve come and how much farther we want to go. What started as a simple poem on a scrap piece of paper has involved into a social enterprise I am so proud to have created with Samantha. We are continuously motivated by your feedback and involvement with our platform and hope to continue to inspire you as our movement and vision grows.
– Amanda Bernardo, Author
“We wanted kids to feel like they belong, for them to have a book that they could relate to. When you have a kid that feels inspired it’s really rewarding to think that we created something that sparked that inspiration within them.”
It was an amazing experience to be featured with CBC Ottawa and we are very excited to share the final product today with all of you! Special thank you to CBC for also highlighting our nomination in the upcoming Ottawa Social Impact Awards!

Little Voice joined the set of Roger’s Daytime Ottawa with host Derek Fage and co-host Jasmin Rose!
What a wonderful experience it was to join the set of Daytime Ottawa!
The cameras were rolling, the guests were waiting and the set director soon after counted down as we prepared to chat live!
We felt right at ease with Derick and Jasmin who, along with all of you at home, got to learn more about the inspiration, background and future projects for Little Voice!
Unfortunately, we ran out of time before we had the chance to share the winner of our contest! However, shortly after, we did make use of the Daytime Ottawa set one last time to announce our winner!
Congratulations to Lucy from Twitter! A copy of Little Voice will be arriving in your mailbox soon!
