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 🙂
