Describe your role as Project Support Officer & PA in 3 words.

Varied, challenging, rewarding!

Why DWW?

What I like most about DWW is working with an enthusiastic and experienced team who all feel passionate about making quality healthcare a reality for communities affected by poverty, conflict and natural disasters. The approach of working with local partners ensures the projects are impactful and sustainable, which I think is really important. Working for DWW alongside my studying for masters in International Development has been great as the two really complement each other, and I am looking forward to our exciting 2021 projects!

What’s your favourite way to relax after a busy day?

I always find cooking relaxing after a long day – I love trying recipes from different places around the world. Recently I have really got into cooking Indian and Nepalese food, after I travelled there last summer.

What was the last book you read?

Apart from reading for my masters, the most recent book I read was ‘On the Front Line with the Women Who Fight Back’ by Stacey Dooley, one of my favourite documentary makers. It’s a really interesting and moving look at inspirational stories from women she’s met throughout her career.

What are some hobbies that you like to do in your spare time?

I love going to gigs and festivals – one of my favourite things about Manchester is how good the music scene is, there is always something on. I also enjoy running and joined a running club this year.

When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a journalist, and I used to create my own little newspaper about made up news for my family!

Thank you so much to Imogen for taking the time to share more about her, her role and her interests. We hope you enjoyed getting to know her, because we have a whole ‘Meet the Team’ series planned for you! You’ll get to know everyone from our UK team, including our Board Members over the coming weeks and months.
