Our Ambassadors

Ben is a devoted teacher, husband and father of 3. Ben is the coordinator of Community Services at Sunshine Coast Grammar School and has numerous years of experience with community, connection, and youth. Ben is delighted to have been asked to help raise the profile of No More Fake Smiles as an ambassador. Ben has been a part of NMFS from the beginning and is a significant role model in Annie's life. He has seen NMFS from its inception, on the front foot - campaigning, promoting and raising valuable funds for vital work in child protection. Ben is in awe of what Annie, Tracey and the team have achieved and, most importantly, how they have gone about it. He believes NMFS is a call to arms for everyone in our community. 'It is about ensuring that we all take steps to look after our most valuable resource – children'. As a teacher and father, he applauds NMFS for standing up, making a difference, having those tough conversations, children feel safe, and no stone is left unturned in making our community a safe place for everyone. The old saying, 'It takes a village to raise a child has never been more apt. Ben looks forward to joining the community that NMFS continues to build and playing his role in the fantastic work of this brilliant charity.

When Roxanne first met no more fake smiles co-founders Tracey and Annie, she instantly became one of their biggest supporters and is proud to now be an ambassador for the charity. Change requires conversations and it’s people like Annie and Tracey, who are brave enough to share their stories, that open the doors to real and lasting positive change.
