Your Volunteering Counts - Aishat's story
We want to say a big thank you to Aishat who has been one of our Admin volunteers and shared the message below about her volunteering experience. Our volunteers bring different skills to our organisation and are passionate about making a difference to the lives of the people we support and we simply couldn’t do as much as we do without people like Aishat.
"As my time at Your Voice Counts comes to an end, I find myself reflecting on the incredible journey I've had over the past year as part of their dedicated admin team.
"Volunteering here has been more than just a commitment; it has been a rewarding experience filled with learning, growth, and meaningful connections. Working alongside such a passionate and dedicated group of individuals has been a privilege, and I am immensely grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the impactful work that Your Voice Counts does.
"I will miss the inspiring environment, the shared sense of purpose, and the camaraderie that comes from working towards a common goal. Each day brought new challenges, and together, we navigated them with resilience and a shared commitment to making a difference.
"Thank you Ann, for the learning opportunities. Thank you to everyone at Your Voice Counts for welcoming me into this incredible community and for allowing me to play a small part in the important work you do. The memories and experiences will stay with me, and I leave with a heart full of gratitude.
"Grateful to University of Sunderland’s Carly Holliday for putting me on. She found me the best place to put my skills to good use.
"As I embark on new adventures, I carry forward the lessons and inspiration gained during my time here. While this chapter may be closing, the impact of Your Voice Counts will forever be a part of my journey.
"Wishing the organization continued success and looking forward to staying connected with this amazing community."
