indiGLOW Award: Bee
This week’s indiGLOW Award goes to the lovely Bee!
What often keeps a charity running is the rather unglamorous, time-consuming, administrative tasks that need to be completed in order to keep it afloat. It is not often people want to get involved in this side of the work, so when Bee contacted indiGO asking if she could help in any way, our team very eagerly snapped her up!
Bee, already doing amazing work in her day job caring for people as a healthcare assistant, wanted to help people outside of work too. Since the beginning of the year, Bee has helped to run indiGO from the UK. She is a dedicated, reliable member of our team, and without her, we would quite frankly be a mess! Thank you Bee for helping keep us afloat.
We caught up with Bee to ask her a few questions about her experience with Indigo Volunteers…
So what do you do for indiGO Volunteers?
I’m a Volunteer Coordinator. I answer enquiries and advise volunteers on projects they could go to. I try to make the process smooth and easy!
What inspired you to be part of the indiGO team?
I feel strongly about human rights around the world and love volunteering to help improve the situation of others. As I am not able to go to any of the projects at the moment I was thrilled that I could help out with indiGO! I am proud to be part of indiGO as they have brought together courageous, innovative minds that throw their heart and soul into enabling volunteers to help people regardless of their background. They have helped to spread peace and love across the globe, empowering and inspiring others and I feel blessed that I am able to be a part of it.
Tell us a bit about yourself…
I am a healthcare assistant working with children and absolutely love it! I am lucky that I never feel work is a chore and always leave on a high. When I’m not at work or with my family, I am working with indiGO…my other family!
I love travelling and reading non-fiction (but enjoy a fiction from time to time!)
I try to respect and protect earth and her inhabitants and aim to live a more earth friendly lifestyle. My home is always filled with interesting plants and I am determined to grow a little ecosystem on my balcony. I absolutely love kick boxing as it makes me sweat and feel powerful.
Have you got any hidden talents?
I can cross one eye and spin the other one round at the same time!
I did a skydive recently!
