For her work in collaboration with other organizers and activists, Wawa has been recognized as a 776 Fellow, a Young Changemaker at the 2023 Green Carpet Fashion Awards, Young Futurist by The Root, a Grist 50 FIXER, a Glamour College Woman of the Year,, and named a Climate Creator to Watch by Pique Action and the Harvard T.H.
