Simone Francis

About Me: 

After high school I had no idea what I wanted to do, so I went travelling and worked my way around the world for a few years doing jobs that I wasn't passionate about.

One day I decided to start my dream career by combining my love for adventure and creativity with helping others globally.

I believe that by sharing my creativity and inspiring life experiences with others, especially youth, I can positively influence people to change the world for the better.

Nomadic Hands
(The Social Enterprise I run)

Nomadic Hands inspires youth to become involved in social and environmental adventures around the world.

Through documentaries, photography, and journalism, Nomadic Hands strives to create awareness about people and organisations that are changing the world.

The project encourages active participation and allows young people to learn first-hand how to create lasting and effective change through motivational school speeches, budget travel and overseas volunteer workshops and multi-media travel internships.
