1) Tell us a little bit about yourself

I’m Mel! I’m Group Operations Director at our company Food Equity Group.  I love food, wine, being creative and will obsessively pat every dog I see walking by me!

2) Why did you choose to join THPA’s Youth Board?

After returning from a Business Chicks Immersion Trip to Senegal in 2018 I wanted to continue and deepen my involvement with THP. The Youth Board was a perfect opportunity to be involved, contribute and continuously learn more about THP.

3) What is your highlight from being on the Youth Board so far?

The highlight is definitely my fellow Board members and the energy and ideas we create each meeting. It’s such a great group of passionate, clever and engaging people. I always feel so energised and inspired after our time together.

4) Where do you see yourself in ten years?

I have absolutely no idea! I find this exciting, you never know what’s around the corner!
