Between the ages of 16-21 I was a leader for 2 weeks each summer at a local CSSM. I value this experience greatly as it contributed to giving me confidence in areas like speaking in front of large groups as well as leading small groups. I enjoy singing and have been heavily involved in church choirs and leading worship in Sunday services. In 2010 I travelled with a team of 5 people to Slovenia to teach English to adults. We spent 2 weeks running an English club and were supported by a church out there. It was an incredibly challenging experience and reinforced skills of leading and teaching, as well as forcing me to get out of my comfort zone as I had never really led adults in this way before. Being on a team in this situation also gave me more experience of dealing with different personalities and outlooks. I have a keen interest in interior design, and I have an interiors social media blog on Instagram called, ‘My Interior Motive.’ I also run an Interiors feature page On Instagram with 5 other ladies called, ‘Wee Squares of NI.’ I love sharing what I love in the interiors world and helping people find the best products for their own homes. My interest in social media & my newly required qualification in digital marketing has made me keen to use my skills in this area, as a volunteer. I also enjoy Pilates and generally keeping fit and active.
I would like to focus on social media/digital marketing volunteering. I really don't mind what area, as long as it is helping reach people in some way.
