Fast Five with Caine Wilkins


How did you hear about SSE? What attracted you to the Engagement and Outreach Officer role?
I heard about SSE when one of our projects, the White Paper, was being formed last year and there was a discussion about reform of the secondary syllabus. This attracted me to my role because the work SSE does is meaningful. We create opportunities for people to live authentically and realise their dreams. My role resonates especially because I love forming relationships with people who create lasting change and inspire me.

I love reading a book in bed with my tea. Or going for a swim in the ocean.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?
