"I am so fortunate to live the life that I live right now. I feel that it’s important to do what is in our power to help those in need and to teach the life skills of love, compassion and empathy to our children, so that they can pass this onto future generations.”
Liem was one of the founding members of GGB who has discovered that he enjoys helping at the front lines. He is a Volunteer and Goodwill Ambassador for GGB, a system administrator, and an avid recreational volleyball player.

Mostafa is studying at the U of A towards a degree in pharmacology, and hopes to continue his education afterwards by going to medical school. He loves learning about how science can be used to help solve health problems and that drives him to pursue medicine, and also it’s the motivation for him to volunteer with GGB. He volunteers because he feels that he has the ability to do so much good with what he learns. Helping GGB is a small step towards his future career where he will get to help people all the time.
Outside of school, he loves to work out, go on walks, and has a black belt in taekwondo. He also spends way too much of his spare time playing video games.
Thelicia is a single mother of four, grandmother of one and totally rocking both the roles of mom and dad! She works full time as a department manager. Between home life and work, she finds time to enjoy paddling with her OCC family.
She has been with GGB from the very beginning and volunteers when and however she can. One of the most important lessons she wants to teach her children is to generously give without any expectations. For her, giving is not only about money. It’s about time, kindness and heart. She is trying to lead by example, and believes that it all starts at home.
