Jason Antman
Melbourne, Australia Participated in the overseas program in August 2022

I began my MDA volunteering period at the beginning of August, and have quickly been exposed to a vast array of many different and rewarding experiences. Every time I have stepped foot on the ambulances, I have immediately felt like not only a part of a team, but a vital role in it. I have had the opportunity to work close up and hands on with patients as a first responder, feeling like I am making a genuine difference to peoples lives. In this photo, two of my friends and I are just beginning a night shift which is something new and exciting for all of us. The MDA course has equipped me with skills that I will take with me after the volunteering period, giving me confidence to respond in times of crisis anywhere. I have loved every minute of MDA and can’t wait to continue volunteering!
