Christina Caplice has spent the last 11 years in her role at the forefront of the Hotel and Tourism Industry in the Northern Rivers, NSW. Her genuine warmth, respect, openness and care for people underpins the essence of her connections within the community.
People are her passion, and whether it is personal or professional, you will find Christina engaged in all that she can volunteer with in the community; eager to lend a hand, inspire and develop more respect and appreciation of each other, offering a bridge for us all to work more closely together, with a keen interest in valuing and listening to the voices of our youth.
Christina’s decade of work with the Department of Human Services in Melbourne left a lasting impression on her, in terms of what is truly going on with our young women and men. Inspired by their rawness and the need to provide a community platform to give a voice to their expression, Christina found herself at the heart of a wonderful group of volunteers bringing the Girl to Woman Festival to life.
Christina is an integral part of the G2W team in sharing the essence of the festival through her wide and varied networks and building relationships with the community. She understands the value of working together to bring more awareness to how our young women are feeling about themselves and understanding ways we can best support them through their transition from girls to women.
She is on hand on the event days for helping with set up and pack down and is a natural when it comes to welcoming our guests and supporting whatever is needed to bring the Girl to Woman Festival to our communities.
I love how the G2W initiative values all our young women for who they truly are and this resonates with how I deeply feel about community. “It takes a village to raise a child” and the G2W Festival is a day where the whole ‘village’ is invited to come together to honour, appreciate and celebrate all the young women for the preciousness that they are. It is in the coming together that we inspire change." ~ Christina Caplice
