As Flourish Australia goes from strength to strength I feel proud to be making a positive difference to the work culture of such a great organisation.
My own experience of discrimination as a migrant to Australia made me acutely aware of the unfairness of limiting social attitudes. What I love about working at Flourish Australia is seeing, everyday, how powerful strengths-based practice can be.
I believe that diversity is what makes life so wonderful and everything Flourish Australia does is underscored by absolute dedication to diversity, empathy and equality. It’s a joy to be part of something where innate or acquired differences have no bearing whatsoever on your potential as a person.
What motivates me is Flourish Australia’s core mission of creating inclusive communities where mental wellbeing thrives by building people up to contribute in a way that is meaningful to them. My role can be demanding but I’ve learned to always make time for people and celebrate their individual differences.
