I'm planning to loan in honour and memory of my grandfather, James McKelvie, who sits beside me in this last photo we took together. He never judged anyone no matter what their circumstances and offered his help to whoever needed it. When he worked as a railway station master, he was very kind to the homeless who made the station their refuge. At the end of each day, despite being told not to, he would find a way to leave sandwiches from the diner out for them. I'm inspired by his warmth and generosity and want to carry the best of him forward in my own life.
I work in marketing and public relations, and I help companies build and maintain strong relationships with key stakeholders through effective communications practices.
