Our team is expanding at The Women’s Organisation! Meet our new Positive Action Trainee Engagement Advisor, Lucia Mills and find out what she was up to before joining our team!
What’s your full name and where are you from?
My name is Lucia, and I am from a small seaside town in Kent called Whitstable. I moved to Liverpool 4 years ago for university and have stayed here since graduating as I love the city.
Tell me how you first found out about The Women’s Organisation and become part of our team?
I have followed The Women’s Organisation for a couple of years on social media and, by chance, saw a vacancy. I am so happy I now work for such an amazing and inspirational organisation, and I am excited for what’s to come.
What kind of things have you done prior to coming to The Women’s Organisation?
I studied international politics at university as I have a strong interest in current affairs and global politics. I have worked as a waitress, both at home during holidays and in Liverpool after graduating. In 2019, I worked at Glastonbury as a steward under the impression it would be a great way to experience the festival, as tickets are so hard to get. However, my shifts were based on the perimeter of the festival, where I had to sit and stare out to make sure no one tried to jump the fence, so yeah… never again!
What has surprised you about working at The Women’s Organisation?
Nothing so far! It has lived up to all my expectations.
What’s the best thing about working at The Women’s Organisation so far?
Knowing that I am a part of an organisation that promotes positivity and inclusivity and whose whole purpose is to support women. Since I joined, everyone here has been so kind and welcoming which has really added to the experience. Also, I haven’t met it yet, but I know there’s an office dog, so I am very excited to meet it!
What might (someone) be surprised to know about you?
I am a massive Beyonce fan and once queued for 11 hours in 34-degree heat just so I could be at the front of the crowd. I almost got sunstroke, but it was worth it!
What do you do when you aren’t working?
When I am not working, I love going out and socialising with my friends, going to the gym, and getting out and about. At home in Kent, I love spending time by the beach and being with my family, friends, and dog.
