Gill Benson

Administrator, Midlands CYM

How long have you been doing your job? I have been working for MCYM for nearly 11 years. I still feel like the new girl at times as things are constantly changing.

What is your favourite thing about CYM? Getting to know the students and supporting them through their journey with CYM.

If they want to get on your right side what would be a good thing for a student to give you?? Chocolate and more chocolate

If you were in a lifeboat with your centre staff and could only save 1 person who would you save and why? We are a team at MCYM and work together. The boat would sink with one of the team missing.

What piece of advice would you give for the 1st week of being a CYM student? Don’t panic! We will do our best to help – no problem is in surmountable.

If you could have dinner with one famous person, living or dead, real or imaginary (not including Jesus or Father Christmas – they are there already :)) who would you invite? I would have loved to meet Mother Theresa because of her servant heart – her compassion and humility. We have so much to learn from her. I hope people are serving her now and that she is sitting at Jesus’ feet.
