MY EXPERIENCE AS A YOUTH LEADER
It was an honour to be at the Australian Republic Movement Gala Dinner on July 29 2017. As a young leader I feel like my work is getting acknowledged. I have been involved with various Not for Profit organisations and councils and one of them the CHP (Council for Homeless People) gave me an opportunity to attend this Gala Dinner as a V.I.P young leader.
I got the opportunity to meet with many amazing people who are doing a great job to support vulnerable people in our community. A few of them were Gillian Triggs, Bill Shorten and many more. Amazing speeches were given which makes me feel incredibly proud of Australia. No words are enough to describe how proud I felt to receive the honour to attend this event.
