NSLF Spotlight – Mimi

Posted by | · · · · · · · | Continuing the Conversation · Library | No Comments

Each year we take a group of young men and women to participate in the NSLF Internship program. This is an 8-month commitment to growing relationally, professionally and spiritually whilst helping to build the Forum event.

Mimi is one of our 2016 Interns. Here’s her story.


I had no knowledge of the forum prior to the time I was nominated by the director of the college house I am currently live in. I had a few conversations with a friend that attended the forum the year before I did and he told me that he had a really great experience in Canberra. I went onto the NSLF website, read up on the forum and I was immediately drawn in by the fact that the conversation around the whole forum was based on faith and values. At that moment I knew it was something I wanted to be involved in. So I decided to go ahead and apply for it.

• What is your favourite thing about the Forum?

My favourite thing about the forum is the openness of it all. It is a free space where you can be vulnerable and completely yourself whilst still being respected and encouraged. The willingness of every individual to share and the spirit of community at the forum is non-like any other.

• Why are you doing the internship? What is interesting about it?

I am doing the internship because I saw it as an opportunity to challenge myself and grow whilst contributing to something with such a positive outcome for many. At the forum last year I knew I would love to come back again at some stage and be a part of it in another way. This happened to be the perfect opportunity and I get to do so whilst working alongside some amazing people.

Thanks Mimi!
