Meet our YAC: Alexi

12 Apr. 2019

Tell us a little about yourself, what you’re currently doing (School/Education) and what you do for fun?

I am 19 years old and have grown up in the western suburbs. I really enjoy cooking, writing and going on adventures around Victoria. 

 Why did you decide to join the headspace Melton YAC?

I joined Headspace Melton YAC because it looked like a good opportunity to help the community and those living with mental health issues.

 What would you want to tell other young people in the community about headspace Melton?

headspace Melton is a fantastic service. You don't need to be struggling with mental health issues to pop by and say hi. Everyone is super friendly here.

 Favourite Sporting Team and why they’re the best?

My favourite sporting team is Collingwood. I've liked Collingwood and plan on sticking with them well into the future.

 Favourite tv show/Movie and why?

I love Marvel Movies. I also enjoy rewatching House.

 Best Part of being involved in a group like the YAC?

I love being given to meet new people and get out in the community.

 Is there a particular area of work or project that you’d like to work on in the YAC over the year?

I am extremely passionate about raising awareness of trauma and dissociative disorders and helping people recover from them. I look forward to opportunities in the coming year that will allow me to do that.

 What’s your favourite type of self care (Watching Netflix, gardening, working out)?

My favourite type of self care is turning of my phone and watching a movie.
