Charben is a multi-disciplinary designer, helping to make WEC UK’s communication materials look beautiful. As a WEC associate, she brings her skills to WEC on a part-time basis.
WEC: How and when did you become a Christian?
Charben: I grew up in a christian home and I’ve believed in God from a very young age. Just before I turned eighteen, my dad fell seriously ill. At that point, something clicked. As a family we prayed and cried out to God for a miracle. That was the time I decided to put all my trust in God for everything.
WEC: How did you become part of WEC?
Charben: I found out about WEC through my church friend Chris. She knew I was studying design and motion graphics and asked if I’d like to help WEC with some design work. I wanted a role that let me really serve God, so it was a real answered prayer.
Whatever needs to be done that I am capable of doing, I do. I love being able to use my skills in mission.
WEC: What does your role involve?
Charben: I am a multidisciplinary designer so it varies from graphic design to motion graphics, from video editing to illustration. Whatever needs to be done that I am capable of doing, I do. I love being able to use my skills in mission.
WEC: What is it like being a WEC associate – working for WEC on a part-time basis?
Charben: It’s great! I get to work for a christian organisation, spreading the gospel, and at the same time I can focus on my family and my other interests.
WEC: And what other interests do you have?
Charben: I love to sing and play guitar. I enjoy art and I spend a lot of time practicing calligraphy and painting. I am also a very visual person, so I love capturing moments through photographs and video.
WEC: Who’s your hero?
Charben: My parents. I am always astonished when I hear about the way that they have lived their lives and how they have found God. I can truthfully say that they are the bravest people I have ever known.
