1. What is your role at Indigo?
Volunteer Coordinator – Refugee & Migrant Team. I’m a newbee to Indigo and will join the team in Greece managing volunteers and projects we support in the Balkans.
2. Tell us a bit more about you
At 16 I moved from Switzerland to the UK to finish school and then went on to study Psychology at Loughborough University where I graduated this summer. I have previously volunteered in India, Sri Lanka and the UK, and worked for the NHS. People are at the centre of my everyday life and even having a small impact on their life is what I strive for.
3. What inspired you to be part of Team Indigo?
I found out about Indigo via Instagram and instantly knew I wanted to be involved somehow! Having volunteered in the past I have realised the immense importance of ethical volunteering, so I was immediately drawn to Indigo’s mission to create a cultural shift ensuring both volunteers and projects get the best from each other. The work Indigo does is life-changing to so many people, and it is an honour to be part of such an inspirational and bubbly team 🙂
