I joined ACH because their purpose is very relevant to my own life story and supporting people at a critical point in their lives can make all the difference. This is both to their quality of life as well as the society in which they are integrating.
What gets me up in the morning is making a positive difference to the lives of people who face challenges. Although I like being close to the people we serve, my experience is more suited to organisational development, so I serve on the board.
In my spare time, I love travelling and experiencing how different people live their lives. Seeing life from different perspectives is the most enriching experience.
I hope that my lived experience can bring some value to the organisation. I also bring finance, social value, IT and organisational development experience to ACH.
