Steirn is the founder of Beautiful News an online platform that delivers a good story to South Africans every day.

Founder of Beautiful News, Adrian Steirn, received the Commonwealth Points of Light award from the Queen of England on Monday.

Steirn uses his skills as a photographer to raise awareness about protecting endangered wildlife across Africa and to deliver positive stories to South Africans.

According to Steirn, the award is for services rendered in Southern Africa for his involvement in the online platform Beautiful News and his voluntary service campaigning for wildlife conservation.

Beautiful News publishes films, photograph or articles that portray positive stories about South Africa and its people every day.

The stories have gained a lot traction globally and we have seen this thing really take off.

We have had over 250 million views and now we have become one of the larger media platforms in the country.

Steirn says when he started with his concept he was asked if he will be able to sustain the idea of publishing a good story daily because the country is full of so much negativity.

At the end of the day, we either make it work as a community or we don't. We either make a plan and do something about it or you leave.
