I believe that the SLSNSW RAG provides an opportunity for me to play a dual role; firstly to represent the community’s perspective ensuring relevance of SLS programs and resources and secondly to generate awareness in the organisation about the work that Surf Life Saving carries out for all communities.

I wanted to be involved in the RAG because beaches and water activities are an important part of Australian life and culture. I want to help make sure that migrants, refugees and visitors from overseas get good clear information about beach and water safety and are able to fully enjoy Australia’s wonderful outdoor lifestyle.

I really enjoy being part of the RAG as it provides an opportunity for open and honest discussion about those issues that matter most to the multicultural communities. I also want the communities I am serving can receive appropriate information to keep them safe in water.

I really enjoyed taking part in RAG meetings and in the decision-making processes, which has led to creative ways that to advocate for culturally and linguistically diverse young people to be involved and represented in Beach Safety and Surf Life NSW scope.
