Volunteer vs MP
I’ve been a volunteer in the grassroots for over a decade. As an MP, you could say my role is the same yet different. For example, as a volunteer, I drafted letters for people seeking help. I still draft letters but as an MP, I’m responsible in seeing that these letters get appropriately managed, and that they get the correct advice and assistance.
