I’m hunting tertiary students for our very first Junior and Senior Star workshop!

Howdy i’m on the hunt for 10 students to join the U3A Creative Writing class at the Baxter Village on Thursday 8 August.

Its the very first workshop for Celebrate Living History and will give you the opportunity to peek into the past with a senior and write articles for the Celebrate Living History website and magazine. The seniors will also be bringing food from their favourite era!

If you are interested check out www.celebratelivinghistory.com and register as a Junior Star 🙂

Its taken One Year, Four Interns, Eight Board members and a heck of a lot of research….

I’m kind of lazy so I just copied and pasted my interview from Bendigo Bank’s Big Plan site…

In a nutshell the Celebrate Living History website is up!! Whooo hooo!!!

My plan success story

1. Now you’ve marked your plan a success, what about it makes you most proud?

Its taken 1 year, 4 interns, 8 board members and a lot of research to get to this level. The Celebrate Living History website showcases my passion in one spot and really is a website made for the community by the community. I really hope from here we start to have a sustainable future, because this is the job that I want for life.

2. What challenges did you face on your journey and what have you learned?

I struggled a lot, I’ve treated Celebrate Living History as a real life uni project. I learnt how to create a not-for-profit enterprise from scratch, how to be a mentor to uni students and how to treat seniors like stars. But I think if I didn’t struggle I would not have appreciated the position I am in now, I am so proud of my students and I’ve learnt that age does not matter, seniors are just people who have lived on the planet longer than I have. They have a wealth of knowledge which I feel honoured to share with the community.

3. What are some ways that PlanBig has helped you?

I think having the plan out there motivated me to keep going, especially at the start when I was doing everything solo.

4. Is there anything else you’d like to share?

Please have a gander at the Celebrate Living History website which showcases community, heart and a heck of a lot of work 🙂
