Year of Experience
I am incredibly passionate about disaster risk reduction, sustainability and reducing inequality and poverty amongst communities. As an emergency services volunteer for Red Cross Australia, I have conducted assistance to victims of a structure fire and participated in communal preparedness. In doing so, conducting well-being checks, psychosocial support and aid, and contributing to the city of Sydney’s situational needs assessment. Following this, I produced reports highlighting and analysing the needs identified by affected beneficiaries to ensure efficient communication between the service providers, advocacy for the affected civilians, and in turn proposed methods to enhance the humanitarian response.
I have completed the Essentials of Humanitarian Practice (EHP) course by REDR Australia, it has aided in the development of my problem solving skills and demonstrated my ability to excel in team-based environments and humanitarian operations. My experience in multiple industries such as having three years of dental nursing experience and childcare have shaped my interpersonal skills and provided an insight into the crucial nature of protecting vulnerable groups and individuals.
