Heather Madussi

Heather Madussi - Youth Award 2015Heather Madussi is a full-time social work student at Lakehead University as well as a Community Friend volunteer for Wesway since October 2013. She volunteers at least once and often twice a month. Heather is always willing to take on new challenges and is eager to provide respite to a family in need and to spend quality time with the family’s loved one who has special needs. The participant whom Heather supports did not have socialization in her life. Heather provides the support during walks outside, encouraging greetings to people, thus enhancing the intrinsic value of having friends in the community. Activities indoors could include acting out skits based on favourite television programmes. Heather welcomes change, has a positive attitude and easy-going nature-well suited to this role.
