Marriott Is My Magic
" Volunteering at Marriott changed my life. If you’d have asked me beforehand why I was volunteering I’d have told you that I wanted to help people. I was naïve.
If you ask me now I’ll tell you that I’m here to improve the quality of people’s lives. This is not a duty. It is a huge responsibility and an absolute honour.
The responsibility is one I don’t take lightly. I want to keep learning and bettering myself so I can give my clients, my colleagues, my friends, the best possible service that I can. I owe it to them for allowing me to be here and part of their lives.
We are part of an ever-improving service that strives to empower people with a disability. I find this challenging and incredibly exciting! That I should be a part of this is a gift. It is a pleasure. It truly is an honour. Empowering people is empowering.
I came seeking direction. What I found was my heart. I found myself. I found a life.
People have said to me that it takes a special kind of person to do this work. They are ignorant. It is a special kind of privilege.
Marriott is a community of joy. Marriott is my magic. I hope to be a part of it for a long time to come.
