"It’s never about you as an individual, it’s a collective of people working well together to make things improve," she said. 

"I was lucky to volunteer alongside a lot of good people and I learned from them. 

“If you feel strongly about something, it’s not all about making noise... get involved, steadily work on the issue, support what’s there and try to change it for the better”.
