Christine Leahy has lived and worked across the globe and loves learning about cultures that differ to her own. As a People & Culture Executive she has assisted many people as they migrated to new countries and has been a migrant herself. She understands how hard it can be moving to a new country and hopes the establishment of Music With Mates will ease the transition for people that have recently arrived in Australia.
