Why giving back is important to me.
In the eternal words of Gandhi, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
As a Mrs. Australia 2018 national finalist, I have been reminded of the significance of why giving back is important.
1. Giving back keeps me connected to my community
I pray that I never become immune to what is happening around me and thinking that someone else will take care of it. Giving back in the community keeps me connected to the real issues of our world. It gives me the opportunity to do something about what breaks my heart.
2. Giving back helps develop new skills and better develop me as person
As a wife, mother, business owner and community leader, I believe giving back continues to help me develop new skills. Since being selected as a Mrs. Australia finalist, I’ve been challenged to create opportunity to step up and step out of my comfort zone to connect and approach businesses that I usually wouldn’t have. I have learnt new communicational skills that have better developed me in moving forward to achieve my goals. The more I continue to fundraise for my platform- Act For Kids, I learn more about my self as a person.
3. What you sow is what you reap
My mission in life is to always keep sowing in different ways. I believe we create opportunity and opportunity comes as we give back. Our actions, no matter how big or small, we can always be doing our part to make a difference.
4. Be an example
As a Mrs. Australia national finalist along with all my other roles in life, I am honored to be an example to my child, my community and my country. We never know who is watching us and who we are inspiring. Giving back in whatever shape or form is an opportunity to be an example and inspire those around us.

Be An Example
To be an example and hoping that someone else will give back and make a difference is easy, but we have enough bystanders. What we need are people who care enough to take a stand and fight for the things that matter to them. Every step that you take counts and will contribute to your mission, so never underestimate your power to impact the world.
