Our Volunteers – 2022

Annika Valladodid – Graphic Designer

My name is Annika, currently a student at Yoobee College studying web & graphic design. I absolutely love eating out and tasting new food around Auckland. I also spend my time learning about design techniques to improve my graphic design skills. 

What attracted me about Achieve2b was about their exchange program for students with disabilities. After hearing about their stories was really inspiring and made them feel more confident about themselves. I’d love to see more students experiencing the same thing in the future.


Lulul Shaik – IT Coordinator and Cultural Facilitator

Hi I am Lulul. I am the  IT Coordinator and Cultural Facilitator at Achieve2B. I am passionate about helping people and bringing a smile on their face because it gives me immense satisfaction. Of course positivity is contagious and I strongly believe that! I love travelling and admiring nature, it makes you wiser and introduces you to self.  

I also love the subject math, it enhances my logical thinking!!!
