AWAKEN:2018

AWAKEN: My story to create a little more change

When I finished school, I left Australia for the first time with the unavoidable ignorance of someone brought up in an incredibly lucky world. From that moment on, I have been challenged.

I was personally challenged through travel and meeting people with vastly different expectations of ‘the basics’, especially the women who genuinely believed their access to basic rights came second to others. On a professional front, challenges came in the form of numerous “holy sh*t” moments when a lack of confidence reared its ugly head.

Over the years, I have tried to affect some small amount of sustainable change, especially related to the progress of women. I have taken career breaks to volunteer, climbed mountains to raise money, and supported my friends and family who have done the same. Professionally, I’ve been fortunate to have access to education and excellent mentors to build my confidence and deal with change. However, I have never had the opportunity to connect the two…until now.

In March next year, through The Hunger Project (THP) New Zealand, I will take part in a leadership immersion course - AWAKEN:2018 - in Malawi, Africa.

THP is a global organisation committed to ending chronic hunger by 2030. They do this through sustainable, community-led enablement and education. They also have a specific focus on empowerment of women, as proven catalysts for change. What has drawn me to THP though, is the way they use the experiences of leadership in hunger stricken communities to explore what leadership means in our local and professional communities at home.
