Congratulations to the March Volunteer of the Month, Yasmin! She has been working on the Wednesday AM team since May 2020 and quickly became a hard working, dedicated volunteer who is consistently reliable and shows up for her team. (And her team loves her!) Often noticing and relaying important information about our horses and property which is very helpful not only to our horses, but extremely helpful to the staff to have another keen watchful eye. We are lucky to have volunteers like Yasmin and are happy her husband helped her find SAFE. Read a little more about Yasmin below.
How and when did you first get involved with horses?
I had some sporadic riding classes as a child and that was the extent of my involvement with horses. However, I’ve always loved them, so volunteering with SAFE was a great opportunity for me.
Do you have one now you want to tell us about?
I don’t own a horse. It would be a dream to have a horse one day.
What do you like most about volunteering with SAFE?
I love working with my team and interacting with horses.
Do you have a favorite SAFE horse?
I absolutely adore them all but if I have to choose I go with Mary, Pippi, and Echo.
What do you do when you are not horsing around with us?
I am a freelance UX designer, I work on different design projects.
Do you have family or special people in your life who support your volunteer work that you would want us to mention in your write up?
My husband found SAFE completely by chance. He’s the one who encouraged me to start volunteering for an animal shelter.
