I am passionate about

Actions

A couple of years ago I realized it is literally in our hands to work towards equality and insertion if we want to create positive change while leading by example. So I joined my company’s Community Charity Consulting, and led a team to help a fair trade shop, that sold fantastic fair-trade products (from fashion to food), remain in business, as 40 years they were struggling to keep their doors open (in spite of 75% of the workforce being volunteers). We revamped their webpage and their social media presence to engage the community, and created partnerships with businesses to stabilize revenue streams (such as agree that company Christmas baskets were created from a combination of the shop’s products). With that intervention, Cap Indigo (http://www.capindigo.ch/) – a branch of Caritas Geneve – is still in business today. I am also passionate about food and sustainable production. While living in Geneva, I participated in food drives called “Samedi du Partage” that helped the elderly and disadvantaged people in our community. In Sydney, I advocated for the "YES" campaign for Marriage Equality that has now triggered a change in the law. I also support OzHarvest (http://www.ozharvest.org/), the leading food rescue organization in Australia, collecting quality excess food from commercial outlets and delivering it direct to more than 900 charities who support people in need across Australia. Because I love cooking, I will soon volunteer at a restaurant in Sydney called “Lentils as anything” which provides a wholesome and nutritious meal to anyone, where money is not a concern.
