Volunteer of the Month- Jun 2017: Anna

anna1. What is your background (profession/ workplace/ training)
I'm currently an HMO2 at Monash Health, completing a general year.

2. What inspired you to become a Water Well volunteer?
I believe that preventative health and health education are invaluable investments for everyone within the community, but working with Water Well Project has definitely increased my interest in refugee health in particular.

3. Please share one of your favourite Water Well sessions or moments.
One of my favourite moments was when an elderly participant got up in a Healthy Eating and Exercise session to give us a Tai Chi demonstration!

4. What tips do you have for new volunteers?
Go with the flow! Each session will be so different, even if it's the same topic you have done before. Be led by the group and what they want to know, don't worry if you're not quite sticking to your planned template.

I've enjoyed my time with Water Well Project so far, and I've learnt so much. Looking forward to many more fun sessions to come!
