Life in, and connection to, Hobsons Bay

I have lived in Hobsons Bay for almost 8 years. I worked as a playgroup facilitator for 2 and a half years with Hobsons Bay City Council. I ran two groups, one for the Arabic community and one as a multicultural group.

I was also a member of both the Women's Advisory committee and the Multicultural Advisory committee. Through the various meetings I attended, I came into contact with many amazing and interesting locals.

Both my sons were born here in Hobsons Bay. Watching them interact with the suburbs, streets and local surrounding has been a very interesting experience as it is quite different to where I grew up over in North Fitzroy.

I thoroughly enjoy working with people from our local community and I often try to think of ways I can do more to help out others who may not have access to resources and information. I come from a Muslim Lebanese community and I know and understand their struggles and their hopes. I feel obliged to make a difference for the sake of my community and its future.
