Here's a quick 60 seconds with Fiona
How did you first get involved with CNCF?
My wonderful sister Elly has been voluntarily co-ordinating events for CNCF Australia for a couple of years now. I went along to one and came away wanting to get involved. After a stint helping out ad hoc, I've been lucky enough to be able to take on a more permanent role.
What do you like about your role at CNCF?
The opportunity to work with such a passionate and dedicated group of people is fantastic. CNCF Australia is built on such strong values from Christina's own story, it means there's so much scope to do really valuable and exciting things in terms of communications.
What has been your most fulfilling experience with the Foundation so far?
I was in Vietnam recently and visited CNCF in Ho Chi Minh City. Meeting children in the rehabilitation centre and the Girl's Shelter really reinforced for me why the work CNCF does is so valuable and how much of an impact the Foundation makes on children's lives.
CNCF's goal is to give children back their childhood. What's a happy memory from your own childhood?
Riding my bike home along the bike track near our house in the late afternoon sun, after a day spent adventuring. Even though I'd have had a wonderful day, there was something really nice about the feeling of going home. I think every child deserves to feel that.
