|Your Name: Amber Ward
Designation and Experience:
I have a Certificate in Office Information Technology. I have been in Customer Service and Administration roles for 10+ years. I have more recently discovered my need and passion for work that caters to impacting the lives of others for the better. I have had the chance to travel to Ethiopia, twice, to understand the impact that sponsorship and assistance for sustainable living has had on those people.
What inspires you?
I feel most inspired when I get to witness other people discuss their passion for things and ideas – when they speak whole-heartedly about what they love. Also, witnessing others around me, friends, family, and colleagues, accomplish their goals.
What are your proudest accomplishments?
I believe each stage of my life comes with proud accomplishments. More recently I have invested my spare time to my health and fitness goals. I have entered into the world of competing and got my hands on some hardware in the process. I have a 1st Place win at the ABBA Winter Open in Bikini Fitness 2016, a 1st Place win at ABBA Provincials in Bikini Fitness 2017, and have earned a National Athlete life-time standing with the Canadian Body Building Association in doing so.
What are your Hobbies and Interests?
I love animals! Cats mainly, but anything with fur pulls at my heart-strings. I also, as stated, maintain a very active lifestyle. Almost every day has time spent inside a gym, but in the warmer days of the year, I will head outside. Including winter! I love trying new things, such as half marathons, obstacle course racing, cross-country skiing – anything that challenges my mind and my body.
