Meet the volunteers

Kay Tang 

I am happy sharing my skills with other people in the local community. I find fulfilment when I see groups of my students performing at Chatswood council events to bring joy to the public. Being a volunteer enriches my social life through meeting people from many different cultures as well as people with different interests. MOSAIC Centre is a meeting place for everybody to interact and enjoy the harmony of Australian multicultural community.

I have had a lot of joy from teaching English and facilitating conversation amongst speakers of other languages. Planning the lessons is mentally stimulating. I enjoy learning a lot about the students’ countries and cultures when they are speaking. It is very gratifying being able to help people talk to each other.

Sophia Huang 

I have volunteered at MOSAIC for 23 years. I have met many other groups, participated in many activities. I feel very happy, healthy, satisfied and have been growing with the experience. Studying with young people makes me young and lively. Seeing my multicultural friends getting to know each other and having everyone together in harmony is the best nutrition for my body and soul.
