Meet Sevine Gokkaya
Who do you volunteer for?
I currently volunteer with the City of Canning Books on Wheels service for both Riverton and Willetton library. In addition I am also a volunteer with North Metropolitan TAFE as a home tutor.
Why do you volunteer?
The reason I began volunteering was having settled permanently in Perth I felt a deep appreciation for living in such a wonderful city. Therefore, in return, I wanted to help others whilst being involved in my community. Volunteering has connected me to a cause which is not only important to me personally (i.e. my love of the library), but has given me the opportunity to meet, make friends and be part of a fantastic community. In all, being a volunteer is truly a worthwhile experience in so many ways and has certainly enriched my life.
