Meet our R4Respect Youth Workers

R4Respect is supported by a team of Youth Workers from a range of diverse backgrounds. They use school activities, digital communication strategies and community outreach to promote the values and attitudes that help young people understand what is okay and what crosses the line into unhealthy or abusive behaviour.

"Love your work #R4Respect - great role models for young people as agents for change."

Nagma - R4Respect Program Coordinator

Hi my name is Nagma! I joined R4Respect to be able to make an active impact in our community. I am a strong believer that as young people we are able to instill the key concepts with peers our own age. I believe through positive reinforcement we are able to create new perspectives on respectful relationships.

My background and passion lie in self care and overall health and well-being. In my spare time I love to hang out with my friends, go to the gym and hope to one day compete in a powerlifting competition. In 2019 I graduated from QUT with a Bachelor in Behavioural Science with a minor in Counselling now going onto complete my Masters in Secondary Education.

As a young person it has always been my vision to help my local community which has thankfully landed me this opportunity with R4Respect! Through my position as a youth worker if I am able to make a positive impact on at least one young person’s life, I will be happy knowing that my work has made a difference.

Mack - R4Respect Program Coordinator

Hi everyone, my name is Mack, and I am currently studying a Bachelor of Social Work as I have a passion for community and young people. I joined the R4Respect team as I believe in the power of safe spaces, education and working alongside young people, to positively impact our culture.

Bilal - Youth Worker

Muhammed. Bilal. Tasawar. Remember the name. The greatest youth ambassador that ever lived. Well, I hope so anyways!

Hi everyone, my name is Bilal. I’m 19 years old, fresh out of high school and currently completing my bachelor’s degree in Psychological Science at Griffith University. Now you might be thinking, ok Bilal cool but why did you join R4Respect in the first place? I strongly believe that everyone deserves loving and healthy relationships in every capacity, and everyone deserves a change at that. Fostering healthy relationship habits and talking about domestic violence can be a difficult thing to talk about and unfortunately isn’t taught to us in school, so I’ve made it a goal to be the friend and teacher I wish I had while growing up in school for somebody else! In my spare time, I love to play video games, write poetry, and hang out with my amazing friends. See you in the classroom!

Jazmyn - Youth Worker

Hey!! My name is Jazmyn, I’m 19 years old.  

I am currently working full time in childcare and ready to explore the youth sector. I was born and raised in Australia but come from a background of Samoan and Vietnamese. I enjoy spending my time with family, just hanging out or getting food. My passion for working with young youth comes from my past of working in childcare. I have been working with young children for the past 3 years and I enjoying watching them grow and learn and I love helping to shape their little minds in creating a positive and safe environment for their futures. I am very excited to be apart of this team and I look forward to all the opportunities to come.

Marwa - Youth Worker

Hi, my name is Marwa, and I am currently studying Bachelor of Laws (Honours) at the University of Queensland. I love travelling, trying new cuisines and meeting new people. I wanted to join R4Respect to help make a positive impact in my local community and educate youth about domestic violence and respectful relationships. Through my work as a youth worker, I know it will mean a lot to me if my work makes a difference to individuals. I believe that it’s never too late to bring change!

Ruby - Youth Worker

Hey! My name is Ruby, I’m 19 years old. I graduated from high school last year and am currently studying for a Bachelor of Nursing. I enjoy singing, going to the beach and hanging out with my friends, but find that most of my time is spent dedicated to uni. I’m originally from Whangarei, located in the Northland region of New Zealand, but moved to Australia when I was 8. I have been volunteering and working with young people in my local area for around 3 years, so when I received the opportuning to join the R4Respect team I was super excited! I am keen to be a part of this journey to create change in our community regarding DV. I have always been passionate about helping teenagers and helping where I can assist in creating a positive, safe environment for future generations. I am so excited to be a part of this team, and I look forward to all that this opportunity has to offer.
