Meet our Dress for Work volunteer: Sanaa

Let’s get to know Sanaa – an amazing Mother, expert Stylist, delicious Almond cookie baker and Dress for Work volunteer!

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I’m Sanaa, I’m from Syria and I have three children who are 8 years old, 6 years old and 3 and half years old. I really enjoy my full time role as a mother and looking after my children. In between looking after the kids, I volunteer once a week for Dress for Work to gain some work experience and also practice my English skills.

Aside from making delicious cookies for the office, what do you do at Dress for Work?

I help with organising the showroom, assisting clients with their fittings (which is my favourite part of the role), data entry and also liaising with members of public in relation to donations.

What do you enjoy most about working at Dress for Work?

I like Dress for Work and Metro Assist because the staff all feel like family, they are so welcoming and wonderful to work with. I also enjoy seeing the smiles from clients especially the young boys – they remind me of my own children and how we are all really connected, regardless of our backgrounds.

What do you do when you are not at work?

I take the kids to their swimming, music and dance lessons – it’s a full schedule!

Thank you Sanaa!
