Some wonderful people who’ve impacted, and continue to impact, my life:
Dad – instilled the importance of social work and contributing to my community/country.
Mum – always ensured that I understood the importance of doing things properly and with a standard in mind. Tolerates me at my best and worst.
Grandma Shiela, Aunt Lisa, Aunt Shazaha & my cousins Brandon and Chelsea – the core of my personal support system. Grandma continuously showered me with love and support. My aunts and cousins continue to be some amazing cheer leaders.
Nadia – my absolute ride or die friend. She’s the one I’ll call to hide the body (jk). This woman has encouraged and support me through the formation of OYEA and in the latter part of my teens. OYEA would not be what it is without her support.
Ian – A great cheerleader and supporter. Adds some fun and dimension to my, otherwise, boring life.
Nikhil – Keeps me grounded and encourages me to think positively (even when I’m being a complete baboon). A truly special and amazing soul.
Vandi & Esty - #SVEN. Some amazing, genuine people, who continue to encourage and support me through everything I do. The real spice of my life!
Mustard Seed Communities - where it all started. An amazing organisation that dictated a major paradigm shift in my life.
Global Changemakers - an organisation of wonderful people who have subtly impacted my life. A network I am extremely honoured to be a part of.
Thank you to these amazing people. SidMonkey wouldn’t be who he is without you guys!
MANY, MANY, MANY others. It’s impossible to acknowledge the many people that have touched my life directly and indirectly. It is important that I state just how grateful I am for the wonderful love and support.
