When I met Cailey recently, the first thing I noticed were her twinkly eyes and warm, kind nature. Over cold pressed coffee we talked about the past twelve months and I soon discovered that she’d been on quite a journey.
Finishing Year 12 last year, Cailey didn’t know what to do next, and was pretty terrified about finding out. She had been following Cup From Above on Facebook for a few years, and tentatively started volunteering at the café. In this community of acceptance, love and support, she slowly started to gain her confidence back. She shared with me that working there has helped her to be more generous and forgiving, and has empowered her to start venturing out again.
The team trained her up to be a Jedi barista, and with this newfound confidence, Cailey successfully scored a job at another local café. When she’s not there you can often find her back at Cup From Above, continuing to volunteer at the place she considers to be a second family. Thank you Cailey for all that you joyfully give to our community!
