Why I became involved with Misión México

I was first introduced to Misión México by Ere Perez, the beautiful natural cosmetics company that donates to Misión México through their Rosehip Oil Lipbar named “HOPE”. I initially met Deborah Grossman through email and I offered her my graphic design business services. We eventually met in person at the “Somewhere Near Tapachula” screening in Sydney. People as enthusiastic like Deborah, who is completely dedicated to Misión México inspire me to continue giving my support.

What being involved means to you/what you get from it

I love it! I believe we all can find a few hours to spare a week to a life changing organisation like Misión México, no matter where you are in the world, there is always a way one can help. If Pam and Alan have given their entire lives to the children in Mexico, I don’t see how I could ever have an excuse to not share my work.

Graphic design is of key importance to give a out a clear, beautiful and professionally set up message. Helping Misión México to get through to their donators and sponsors through my designs of flyers, photos and brochures is an honour for me.

My husband and I had the opportunity to go to Tapachula in 2010 to meet Pam and Alan the kids. We just loved them all and were amazed at how Pam and Alan are working with the children.

Why I became involved with Misión México

From a young age I have developed a passion for International Development. My undergraduate degree in Spanish and French, along with the various voluntary and professional experiences it gave me at both a local and international level, left me with the ambition to work in the Non-for-Profit sector. Misión Mexico (UK) offered me the opportunity to combine my passion for the Spanish language and Latin American culture and my current studies in Public Communications. When I heard about the Mission Mexico’s incredible work I was determined to be involved and delighted to be given the chance to contribute to its UK launch.

What being involved means to you/what you get from it

First and foremost, Misión Mexico (UK) allows me to use the skills I have gained in a meaningful way. It gives me the opportunity to support Pam and Alan Sukse in their mission to transform the lives of over 50 children.  I gain invaluable work experience, receive professional mentoring and meet and work alongside people from all corners of the UK. It is incredibly exciting to be involved.
