Involvement in the skill/industry: Sherein became a qualified Graphic Designer in her 20’s. She worked as a designer for a number of companies over the years ranging from software development, e-learning, and in-house design roles. She found a passion for teaching and has been teaching Design and UX for a while now with a bit of freelance on the side still. She is currently on a board of studies within her teaching role.

Why volunteer with WorldSkills New Zealand: I found it was another way/outlet for me to really help young people grow in the Graphic Design field, far beyond a classroom. Once you see Worldskills in action you understand further how special and unique it really is in vocational development for youth and communities.
