I began volunteering with Beauty Night Society at the head of this year.

 

I had wanted to volunteer with an organization for some time, but knew that I lacked the physical time for it. School, working full time, and demanding family responsibilities made it impossible, but I knew that season of my life would pass, as all things in life do. Everything comes to an end, whether forced or naturally.

Shortly after university, Laura Fraser moved to Vancouver. She began working in the hospitality industry. After a while, that industry changed and Laura lost her job.

 

Laura looked for new employment, and if you've ever done it yourself, you know it a long process, full of rejection. With time on her hands, and her spirits needing a lift, Laura, who had always wanted to volunteer, looked to that interest. More rejection. Organization after organization, made it so hard to join and serve. Most of them had very long wait lists for the privilege of volunteering.

When we did finally speak, I was struck by Joya's overall sincerity and transparency, as well as her empathy. What would eventually become clear to me, is that Joya acts on all of these qualities, in a very honest effort to help improve the lives of others.

After many years of being out of touch with one another, their paths crossed much later when they found themselves performing in the same choir. By this time, Caroline had established Beauty Night Society and was growing it successfully. Rev, wanted to get involved.
