Unsung heroes and those on the rise

Unsung Heroes in our Community

I have recently been focusing much of my time on getting in touch with many of the fantastic organisations doing important work in our community. I can’t describe just how inspiring this process has been for me. From seeing the essential work Jarryd and his team are doing to help young people at the Redcliffe Youth Space, to learning of the  comprehensive  health provision initiatives in rural areas by Bush Kids and meeting Holly from the Wildlife Preservation Society whose team are working hard to protect those creatures without a voice in our community.

I am only just scraping the surface of the incredible organisations, large and small, that are doing so many important things and I really hope that this blog will become a platform for them to communicate their work and future student partnerships.

As http://www.milaana.org grows, this blog will be featuring Case Studies of successful student/organisational partnerships and the impact that their projects have  generated. Sharing their stories and providing example of how other students and organisations can get involved.

Heroes on the rise

Just in-case I needed any more inspiration, I have also been meeting a number of extremely bright and talented students who share my passion for social enterprise.  I was fortunate to be invited to the University of QLD Business School Post Graduate industry networking event, an event solely featuring Start-ups and Charities! This alone thrilled me but i was completely blown away by the genuine interest and desire to help from the students who approached me after the presentation and who I hope to have the privilege of working with in the future. It will be these passionate students who will no doubt blossom into our future heroes!  I was also in great company presenting alongside organisations like Ozharvest and Brisbane Youth Services!
