Freemen and Oncin Tang are MSH's Super Sibling young volunteers
Freemen is 26, lives in Rickmansworth and graduated from Coventry University with a Degree in Geography. He likes building computers in his spare time. His ideal job would be in an IT related role such as an IT Trainer. He has been volunteering for us since January this year and heard about the position via a Government volunteer website called www.Doit.org.uk. We asked Freemen about his volunteering at MSH.
"Since I joined the MSH Fundraising office I have learned some new software programs such as In-Design which I didn't know about before. I have been doing lots of graphic design work, website management, reprographics, social media and generally helping out with whatever needs doing. I would definitely recommend volunteering at MSH – it is good for confidence building and gaining interpersonal skills and you can see that everything that you do makes an impact on people’s lives. It’s a great place to work and any new skills or experience that you gain are useful for the future and look good on your CV."
Oncin is 17, lives in Rickmansworth and is currently studying Fine Art at West Herts College. She loves using Photoshop, is interested in Fashion and would be interested in working in Illustration when she leaves College. We asked Oncin about her volunteering at MSH.
"I heard about MSH through my brother who was already volunteering there. I needed to get 60 hours work experience hours as part of my college course which I have nearly completed – but I like volunteering at MSH so much that I’m going to carry on working here. Since I joined, I have done lots of graphics work, I have revamped all of the MSH noticeboards, designed lots of artwork including posters and flyers on the AppleMac and helped at several events. It’s nice to know that all of my efforts however interesting, tedious or small are not wasted and are worthwhile. I really enjoy helping out here."
