Transforming the world through each sphere of society
What do you enjoy most about work?
I enjoy the flexibility and the impact. Flexibility is nice as I feel like I work better when I’m not being micro-managed or relegated to busy work. As an NGO, we are constantly sharing about the impact that we are bringing about.
What is a challenge or difficulty you face at work?
In NGOs, the work always feels endless because you’re trying to solve an issue that is insurmountable. A difficulty is learning how to pace yourself and not feel the weight of needing to finishing everything that needs to be done while being faithful.
How do you see that the Gospel is or could be transforming your sphere, industry or workplace?
It gives us a deeper drive and passion to enact change.
How do you think you or others in your field can shine the light of Christ in your sphere?
We can do this by sharing the deeper hope that we have and the reason why we feel so strongly about what we’re doing. At the same time, by being a Christian in an NGO, I believe that we can truly shine the light when we work with excellence.
What is one piece of advice you would give to those that will enter the workplace in the future?
Always keep the bigger picture in mind. Perspective is a very important thing as it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the current issue that you’re facing. In the grand scheme of things, it might just be a tiny blip in the story.
