Michelle Montgomery Masters

Creative Volunteer

I have lived in Pollokshields for 16 years although being part of the community became more important to me when I had my son. I wanted to meet other people with children to socialise with.

My day job is teaching computing to University students and mentoring students with disabilities. I also volunteer in my son’s school and with the local deaf children’s society.

Being part of the ALBERT DRIVE Project has increased my knowledge of my neighbours, allowing me to feel more connected to the area and develop a sense of belonging. Working with both Glas(s) Performance and Janice Parker has been a pleasure and watching and learning from their individual creative processes has been fascinating. Working with the other local volunteers has been great too.

It has all been a very positive experience that I would love to repeat.
