We regularly interview prominent people associated with Mosaic to find out why they got involved with Mosaic and their thoughts on our work. You can read all interviews in the Mosaic Q and A archive.
Why do you support Mosaic?
When I learnt about Mosaic, it took me back to my childhood and brought back many memories as a young girl growing up. I could empathise with many of the children I had met: wanting to be more confident, learning about business, being passionate to succeed and, most of all, learning the most important and fundamental life skills.
Having met some of the children and realising what they needed was good role models that they could look up to and count on their support. It was a no-brainer to support Mosaic. I felt I could offer so much to the team and the younger generation.
What do you most like about Mosaic?
I love the level of involvement from the diverse team, Board members and supporters who all put to one side their job titles and roles in society and come together for a great cause and work seamlessly to achieve a single vision to improve the lives of the younger generation. I love the diversity, the varied debates and opinions that can be discussed amongst so many great people and, of course, getting to meet HRH The Prince of Wales now and again is always a bonus!
What are your hopes for Mosaic moving forward?
My hopes for Mosaic is that it continues to prosper and grow to become an international organisation that strives to improve the lives of young children all around the world. Mentoring and raising aspirations of those who truly deserve a chance in life – and those who deserve a second chance in life too. Mosaic does not judge but listens and works tirelessly to make a fundamental difference in youngsters lives.
Why should others join Mosaic?
There is nothing more gratifying than making a difference in someone’s life. To be able to influence and make a positive change to inspire those who truly need our support is why others should consider joining Mosaic. To meet other like-minded people who share the same vision and to meet so many wonderful youngsters who continually show their gratitude for the love and support they receive from Mosaic members and mentors.
Your favourite ‘mantra’ or quote that guides your approach?
“Our fundamental difference is not our colour, race or religion but purely our intentions and actions to help those less fortunate than ourselves and raise aspirations of those who need our support”.
