Brydi Saul – Age 9
I’m full of fun and energy and always like a challenge! I love sport and love trying ALL types of sport. I have a can-do attitude and love to spread the msg that anyone can do anything they put their mind to! I want to show the world that no matter your ability you can achieve amazing things. I’ve had all kinds of adventures from mud run obstacle courses, spartan races and fun runs to competing in triathlons and wheelchair racing! I love Source magazine and would be honoured to be the brand ambassador.

My name is Fin and I would love to be a source kids ambassador! I’m heading into high school next year and last year I was the vice-captain of my school. I’m very outgoing and confident and I love living life to the full.

New South Wales Finalists
Banjo Koles – Age 9
Banjo would love the opportunity to be brand ambassador for Source Kids
Cooper Smylie – Age 9
Hi I am Cooper and 10 soon. I love surfing and fishing. In July of last year I had a small fall at school and ended up in hospital. I now have a pain disorder so had to change how I do the things I love. I would be a great Source Kids ambassador because I have had to change the way I do everything and know how it feels to be different from other kids and what it is like to not be able to do some activities they way I used too.
Riley Saban – Age 17
I believe it’s my destiny to lead everyone, especially people with disabilities to a more inclusive society. In my short lifetime, I’ve starred in two documentaries about inclusion and assistive technologies, Becoming Superhuman and 7.30 Report’s story on Polyspine. Polyspine is my greatest achievement. With my Dad, I co-founded a modular support system that allows people with physical disabilities to participate in everyday activities. I was the keynote speaker at InteractED recently. I run regular Assistive Technology Workshops. In 2019 I also was awarded Young Leader of the Year in the Third Sector Awards. My Facebook page can provide more details on how I spread my important message: With the right tools you can achieve anything. See @teamriley10.
Tilly Jenkins – Age 9
My name is Tilly, I am 9 years old and I am autistic. I am proud of who I am and would never want to change. My specialist interest is Harry Potter. I like to read the books, build the LEGO and collect anything Harry Potter related. My parents take my siblings and I go to lots of interesting places. We are an autism family and my siblings are also autistic. I would like to promote understanding and acceptance for everyone with different abilities. I enjoy my family adventures and would love to share them with you.
Chloe Weiler – Age 13
I’m Chloe and I’m 13 yrs old. My 1st adventure into team sport was at 8 playing in the u/12 girls’ footy team for Bannockburn, I did this for 3 years. I currently play basketball in the Barwon special Olympics team and also athletics. I have just made the Victorian team to go the National Special Olympics in Tasmania in October. I love going to the speedway, playing with my dogs Buddy and Milo, swimming, washing my mum’s car, cooking a new, going to watch the Geelong Gats win at footy and Melb stars at cricket. I go to Nelson Park Specialist school in Geelong.
Kai Seymon – age 13
Hi my name is Kai Seymon and I am the founder of Kaiko Fidgets, a Melbourne based business making cool sensory stuff! I started making my products for myself as I was getting teased at school for kiddie fidgets. Other kids wanted them so I started selling them. I would love to be a Source Kids Ambassador as it will help me show others that despite difficulties (I am both autistic and dyslexic) you can achieve great things, even when you suck at school(!) AND you don’t have to wait till you grow older. I love Pokémon and I’m learning to play the game. I also love building model Gundam kits and learning to play the electric guitar. Recently I have started to learn how to draw which is fun. I spend a lot of time making fidgets for my business but now my dad helps me lots as well because we sell so many, which is cool. Thanks for considering me for a role with Source Kids
