... at Parentline. A non-profit organisation for the well-being of children who have been witnessed domestic violence and sexual abuse. First thought what came up to my mind, even better…I really want to make a difference and help this organisation out. Eventually I am still working there, managing different kind of tasks, especially managing the website and being a help for the Chief Executive. I really love it in there.
