Ten Years! A decade of commitment and dedication and providing support to people with disability to live a good life.  

Our experienced Interchanger Begonya brings a whole lot of passion to her work. Her journey as a Support Worker began shortly after her arrival in Australia. She was seeking a rewarding career and has come across Interchange, where she has since been able grow and also connect personal interests with her everyday work.

Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of closely engaging with our customers, contributing to various internal projects, and witnessing the positive impact of our work firsthand.

Eighteen months ago, Begonya was promoted to Team Leader and has since then successfully lead the Myaree and Mandurah team with enthusiasm and devotion. Beyond her professional endeavours, she is deeply passionate about advocating for human rights within the mental health space. This passion has led her to collaborate with esteemed institutions such as Curtin University and Yale University, where she serves as a seasonal lecturer and engages in impactful projects. 


If Begonya is not out supporting Interchange customers, she lives and breathes all things art. Architecture, painting and art in general are not just hobbies to her, but avenues for self-expression and creativity. She takes great joy in sharing her love for art with others. Not only has she previously run art classes for our customers in Rockingham, she also organises yearly exhibitions. She said that being nominated for the Disability Support Awards was a humbling and proud moment in her journey with Interchange. 

As I reflect on the past decade, I am grateful for the opportunities and experiences that have shaped me. Looking ahead, my future goals remain aligned with Interchange, where I aspire to continue making a meaningful difference in the lives of those we serve.

Thank you, Begonya for your passionate support and commitment to help people with disability to live a good life.
