Volunteer of the Month, July 2021

Tell us about yourself

I am a university student majoring in Public Health and Rehabilitation Counselling. I also work as a support worker and I am taking my internship at an autism research center.

I am passionate about human connection, arts and any health-related topics.

What inspired you to become a LiverWELL volunteer?

I learnt about the organization through some of my friends and then I found that LiverWELL’s volunteer activities were aligned to my personal values that I want to contribute my effort in their projects to help people who are dealing with liver disease.

My favourite LiverWELL sessions or moments.

I remember my first impression when I started my volunteering is that the training sections were really good and very helpful as well as informative. It does help equip me with important information for the volunteer projects.

Now I’ve been working on Youth Projects and everyone from the project is really friendly and comfortable to work with as we shared information and building up ideas for the projects.

What tips do you have for new volunteers?

I do believe that every step or action we make is really valuable no matter how small or big it is.

We are here to answer your queries and support you. Call or chat with us online.
