Honestly, Curtin Volunteers! has been the best part of my ‘Curtin journey’ because I’ve got to meet so many people. I took 11 volunteers to Rottnest Island over a weekend, putting mesh guards around trees to ensure the quokkas don’t eat the leaves. It was a beautiful setting to work – you didn’t actually realise you were working. To be honest, I was also empathetic to a fault, because I needed to make sure my volunteers were having a good time. I think I annoyed my volunteers by asking them 150 questions about whether they were all right and having fun.
