We want to introduce you to Sophie. Sophie is one of our dedicated Support Mentors, working in our ParentsNext team in the Hunter region.
Recently we caught up with Sophie to find out more about Sophie’s journey with Bamara.
My name is Sophie, and I’m a ParentsNext Support Mentor at Bamara. I work in the Hunter region with the most amazing team. My team leader Steph has taught me everything I know, and I am still learning to get better every day thanks to her.
I don’t really have hobbies except sleeping and eating sushi. But I have two daughters who I love more than anything in the world, and we like to go on adventures.
Ambitious, funny, and down to earth.
I came to an appointment with Bamara (as a participant) and met Tarlia. I advised Tarlia and Amanda that I want to do what they do, help people. A month later, I had an interview with Steph and Amanda and started my first day on my birthday!
ParentsNext supports parents in taking steps toward realistic study or employment goals without the pressure. We offer plenty of support- sometimes all people need is someone to call and vent to.
Lots of appointments, lots of phone calls, lots of laughs.
I see and speak with many participants, and it makes my day go super fast. I love working and creating rapport with the participants to help them achieve their goals.
Working amongst such a great team and watching our participants grow and gain more confidence along the way.
Bamara has given me so many opportunities I would never have dreamed of. It’s never a chore to get out of bed and come to work.
You catch more flies with honey than vinegar. AKA be nice, we are all human, and it doesn’t cost you anything to be a friendly person.
Do it! And if it ends up being not your cup of tea, at least you can say you tried.
