Where do you volunteer?

I am the Events Rep at FXU RAD. I also volunteer at the Beach Clean Project as the Co-President. 

Why do you volunteer?

Beach Cleaning helps our environment and protects marine animals. Volunteering helps connect with the local community.  Plus raising money for charity is rewarding.

What has been you most rewarding moment?

Running Plastic-Free Week on campus! We have received so much recognition and feedback from our peers, the student’s union and local businesses.

What would you say to someone thinking about volunteering?

Go for it! If you’re like me, you’ll find something you really love and want to continue doing for life!
