I am passionate about

Actions

I have been brought up with values that encourage philanthropy and charity, helping the less fortunate with food, medicines and funding for housing and other essentials. I have provided support, community engagement and education programmes, volunteering at children’s and elder’s homes and community soup kitchens. I am volunteering in a local charity in Hull as a mentor for children and young persons with alcohol and substance abuse. I am also co-leading a project within my company that is looking to reduce incidence of severe neonatal jaundice in Vietnam. I strongly advocate for the slogan ‘power of a smile’, and believe that a simple act of kindness or a single smile can make a difference in a person’s life, because it has done so for me.
