Volunteer of the Month- Jul 2017: Grace

grace1. What is your background (profession/ workplace/ training)?
Final year medical student, with a Bachelor of Medical Science (Hons) and a Diploma of International Studies.


2. What inspired you to become a Water Well volunteer?
Some of my friends had been involved from the beginning and it always sounded like the dream gig - having cultural exchanges around health and wellbeing.


3. Please share one of your favourite Water Well sessions or moments.
Doing a "Chair Aerobics" video with a group of elderly Filipinos. I pride myself on my fitness but the octogenarians were putting me to shame.


4. What tips do you have for new volunteers?

Whatever training you've had to date will be enough to have really valuable conversations - so much of the task is simply reiterating the very most basic tenants of looking after health and wellbeing.
