Volunteer of the Month – June 2020: Cecilia

1. What is your background (profession/ workplace/ training)?
I graduated from Monash University in 2018 and I’m currently a junior doctor at the Austin hospital.


2. What inspired you to become a Water Well volunteer?

I believe that education is one of the most powerful tools for improving health and that everyone should have the opportunity to access health information regardless of their background. I think that Water Well does amazing work in helping people in the community to do this!

3. Please share one of your favourite Water Well sessions or moments.

One of my favourite Water Well moments was during a recent remote session on COVID-19, when a participant showed us some of the dance moves she and her family were using to get through the lockdown period.

4. What tips do you have for new volunteers?

My biggest tips for new volunteers would be to give the participants time to share their stories, questions and concerns, and to have fun. 🙂
