Since graduating from the Master of Teaching at the University of Melbourne back in 2011, Lucienne has embarked on a rewarding career in humanitarian work. Managing projects in Lebanon and Syria. She has been awarded the University of Melbourne Graduate School of Education Alumni Award 2020.
Lucienne was a D9800 Rotary Peace Fellow to Uppsala University, Sweden, 2015-17 and was one of six humanitarians honored as People of Action: Connectors Beyond Borders during the 2019 Rotary Day at the United Nations, which focused on the global refugee crisis.
Lucienne developed an “education in emergencies” curriculum to provide instructional materials that can be used in makeshift learning spaces to teach people displaced by conflict. Such spaces create critical safe places for entire communities, where families can fill other basic needs like food, hygiene, and health. Heyworth, who was a teacher before she developed her expertise in providing education in areas of conflict, has focused her work in the Middle East.
