Hello Volunteer - Li Han

Share

 

 

Li Han: Giving back to society and the environment

Li Han views peace and the environment as two of the fundamental elements of life. Li first came to the Peace and Environment Resource Centre in May of 2012. She found out about PERC after searching on the internet. 

Li believes that peace and a healthy environment are necessary for a prosperous society; she feels that Canadians believe this as well and that is why her family moved to Canada. Her family is happy with their new life in Canada and now she feels it is time to do something in return. 

This is why she volunteers at PERC.

 

 

 

Li's volunteer job at PERC is related to donations and the membership database. Every month, Li gets the donation lists from the bookkeeper and Coordinator, enters the names into the database, and renews their membership. She has also assisted with resource inventory and database work for PERC partner projects. In China, Li worked for the biggest telecommunication company as a billing department manager. She got her master's degree in computer science from the China University of Petroleum.

Li is now seeking work in billing management and business analysis. She would also like to expand her social circle. Her hobbies include listening to music, going to the movies, and going swimming. 

Li thinks that PERC is a great organization, in which people are encouraged to get involved in preserving peace and the environment. 

She continues to volunteer at PERC for three reasons:

1) She feels that peace and the environment are very important and we have a duty to protect them.

2) Her volunteer job at PERC is meaningful.

3) Volunteer staff are friendly and easy to work with.

Windmill's vision for the former Domtar lands on Chaudire and Albert Islands is inspiring.
