Sonia

Community Project Lead

Your role/title at Apart of Me:

Service designer and project lead for AOM community project

How are you involved with Apart of Me?

As project lead, I’ve been helping to design the Apart of Me community together with a wonderful group of young people and volunteers. I also support AOM with the odd service design task.

Is there someone or something that you love that isn’t here anymore?

My grandparents, most of them died when I was quite young. What hit me more was the death of 2 aunts who I was very close with. One died when I was 10 and another when I was 22. They changed the way I look at life and death. I’ve also said goodbye to 2 beautiful dogs who raised me more than I raised them.

What is guaranteed to make you laugh?

My best friend, my dog, dark chocolate, Flight of the Concords

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

To live life like death is around the corner, and never be held back by fear.
