What do you enjoy about working with Motivation Australia?
What I personally value about what we do is the inspiring people that we meet; I carry their incredible stories with me. I see our work supporting people to overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges every day, this is the fire in my belly, and this is the very essence of what Motivation Australia exists for.
