Queanbeyan Multicultural Centre, Manager
I have been working at QMC for almost 7 years. I started my career as a QMC volunteer and currently I am the Acting Centre manager and Community development officer for the Centre. I also manage the administration side of the Queanbeyan Multilingual Centre organisation.
Coming from a migrant background, I take a lot of pride in assisting and supporting members from multicultural community in this region. Knowing the struggles and hardships myself as a migrant has helped me to assist people from diverse ethnic backgrounds. I love to celebrate cultural events and bring people together.
My role is to assist people from migrant and refugee families settle in Queanbeyan. I do advocacy and case management as well as runs different social groups, organise excursions, information sessions, fitness activities and dance groups at the Centre. QMC collaborates with different organisations and schools to assist community members and families from culturally and linguistically background. Each year QMC hosts different cultural programmes and events to celebrate the diversity in Queanbeyan. Some of them being Queanbeyan Multicultural Festival, Harmony day, Eid , Navratri, Diwali, Christmas etc. I also work as the admin for other offices under Queanbeyan Multilingual Centre INC.
Besides my love for literature, music and dance, I have an AUSTSWIM Teacher Licence after learning to swim in Australia.
QMC is a friendly community service offering a good range of social activities and support services for community members from all age groups. Organising programs that people enjoy and connecting the community through the Centre’s services are what we are passionate about. We are here to listen and help J
