My favorite moment is when the students from adult migration English program ask lots of questions regarding vaccinations and prevention of hepatitis B.
One of my favourite moments would be the first HepVic community health promotion event I’ve been to as a participant. It was at that moment that I felt the passion that Aurora and other enthusiastic volunteers showed to the participants, I decided to become a volunteer at Hepatitis Victoria.
As a volunteer, I have engaged in several community services and I enjoy spreading information on hepatitis to the community. I have learnt more about the disease as well.
What inspired you to become a Hepatitis Victoria Volunteer?
I love to build stronger communities.
Wanted to get involved and give back time and energy to a health organization that does great work in the community. I don’t have experience working in a health organization yet so Hepatitis Victoria is a great fit!
Through my postgraduate study in public health, I developed the ability to integrate my trilingual and research skills to contribute to population health.
My experience in development work in Cambodia has made who I am today. This development work inspired me to be willing to give back to the society as the whole, especially the Cambodian community in Melbourne when I am here for my study.
