Hi! My name is Siobhan Doyle and I am 22 from Milton Keynes. I am about to start the Step into the Gap programme at Newman University in Birmingham. I have just finished my degree in Spanish and International Development Studies at the University of Chester.
I first heard of CAFOD through my local parish and through school. The first time I really became involved in CAFOD was in my final year of university whilst I was vice president of Cathsoc. We organised several activities to raise awareness of the refugee crisis, including a pilgrimage to Rome with the Lampedusa cross.
This inspired me to apply for Step into the Gap so that I could put my faith into action, learn about how CAFOD works and see first-hand the impact it has on people’s lives in developing countries. I am so passionate about global justice and I am really looking forward to raising awareness of the amazing work CAFOD does and promote its values.
I hope that through taking part in Step into the Gap I will be able to play a small part in raising awareness of the challenges people face in the developing world.
