Volunteers are vital to the success of our organization, and we are grateful for the hundreds of hours our volunteers dedicate to the work of the Canadian Pride Historical Society. This volunteer spotlight is for Paola Valadez, one of our Graphic Design Coordinators based out of Vancouver, BC. Read more below.
How do you balance your volunteer time at the CPHS with your other competing priorities?
As being a part of CPHS is also a priority in my professional life, I reserved one day during the weekend so that it can’t be affected by my work, and I focused on getting everything done.
What do you like the most about the CPHS?
Every day I can learn something new, making me understand and feel proud of every human in the world without judgment.
What has been your favourite project at the CPHS?
Every project has something special, but if I had to choose one, the design of the graphics for the Winnipeg Pride Parade. I am proud to “help” thousands of people throughout the design to spread a message.
What are 3 words to describe the CPHS?
