“I started working for Alliance Community in March this year. My journey so far with being a Support Star is great, or let me say rewarding.
After I moved to Australia in 2017, I discovered the Support Stars position… I decided to be a Support Star so that I can be part of the family to give support to people who need support mentally, physically and emotionally.
My most unique memories of being a Support Starr is the thought that someone can trust me to be a part of their lives and help them when they need assistance... Having a chat with the clients and getting to know how they grew up, what they love and how they would love me to help them is the best.
My most unique memories of being a Support Star is the thought that someone can trust me to be part of their lives and help them when they need assistance. Going for shopping, coffee clubs and to the community are the wonderful memories l have.
Through it all, I have come to realise it takes empathy, passion, positivity and patience to be a great worker.
I am learning a lot from meeting different people, which is great.”
