Support Ambassadors

AAAF Support Ambassadors are carefully selected from a cross section of the community (business, sport, politics, health, media) representing various age groups and states around Australia and all have lived with Alopecia Areata. The Ambassadors assist the Foundation by actively promoting and creating awareness about the condition. They can be contacted directly for one-on-one support, and, wherever possible, can assist with hosting information sessions about Alopecia at schools, clubs and youth groups. However, please be aware that all our Ambassadors are volunteers and attending events is subject to their availability, and the date and location of the events.  

Shea  – reach me at shea@aaaf.org.au

Shea has been part of AAAF for many years and has been living with Alopecia Areata from a young age. A busy dance teacher and proud mum of two beautiful girls, Shea knows that even through tough times, a strong support system and a vibrant sense of humor can get you through anything that alopecia may throw at you. She is very happy to be contacted if anyone has questions, needs to have a chat, or even a good cry.

 James -reach me at james@aaaf.org.au

James joined AAAF in 2012 after organising a charity cycle to raise awareness for Alopecia Areata.  He developed Alopecia Areata Univeralis when he was 9 years old, and enjoys working with AAAF to promote awareness and to provide support to people with Alopecia Areata. James hopes to be a positive role modal and example to others who may be struggling to come to terms with their alopecia, especially to young boys and teens.

 Stef -reach me at stef@aaaf.org.au

Stef has been involved with AAAF’s community for many years, and in 2013 became one of our Support Ambassadors. Stef has been our spokesperson on TV, radio and in several magazines and online publications. She is passionate about sharing her story and experiences to help others know that they are not alone. “Being able to give back to the AAAF in my capacity as a Support Ambassador has been amazing because I still remember my first event with them. Being 14 and bald, I’d always felt like a bit of a freak… until I walked into a room filled with other people like me. Then I felt like I belonged to a community.”
