He is also passionate about exploring new cultures and has volunteered at a cheetah sanctuary in South Africa and Namibia in the past. Fabian has grown up in the Internet Age and has seen first-hand what effects the online world can have on people, both positive and negative. This personal level of experience has encouraged him to put all his efforts into making the Internet not only an enjoyable environment for young people, but also a secure and constructive one.
Administration and Community Apprentice
Before Childnet Kerease studied Psychology which she loved as it taught her a lot about human behaviours and society, she particularly enjoyed studying children’s behaviours and knew that this was a field she wanted to work in.
As a young adult Kerease has seen how the internet can be beneficial to young people and as the internet is continuously growing she is excited to be part of an organization that is focused on educating children and young people on how to use it constructively and safely.
In her free time Kerease enjoys keeping fit and reading books about life and history as she thinks it is important to know about the past and see different perspectives as this helps shape the future. In the future, Kerease would like to travel the world and see how people in different cultures live.
