Felix Ho

Community Volunteer

TASState RecipientYoung Australian of the Year2006

Medical student, Red Cross worker, St John Ambulance volunteer, first aid trainer, and Air Force Reservist. Felix Ho is an exceptional young man with enormous energy and dedication to his communities in Perth and Hobart, where he contributes over 1,000 hours a year of his "spare" time. For example, he helped serve soup to the homeless of Perth, and transported burn victims after the Kuta bombings. Felix moved to Hobart in 2004 under a rural scholarship scheme to study medicine at the University of Tasmania. He has continued his wide-ranging community service since then and has become chairperson of the St John Tasmanian Youth Council, a university ambassador, a sports trainer, and an AFL referee. As if that's not enough, he also serves with the Royal Flying Doctor Service each year.
