Ryan Mount is a seventeen year old student from the Australian Industry Trade College on Australia’s Gold Coast. We came across Ryan last year when after a Humaneity talk at the Trade College he approached the Humaneity team showing an interest to join the Tiny House project.
That was back in late 2016. Fast forward to April 2017 and Ryan is now about to take on a fantastic challenge. Ryan has been tasked by our Tiny House Project team to design and build the outdoor decking area for the Humaneity Tiny House project.
In keeping with the projects aims to involve students from all backgrounds, Ryan’s motivation, commitment and loyalty to the project have endeared him to every member of our team.
Ryan is one of those young people who knows where he is going, knows he has to work hard to get there, and is totally committed.
Mark Philpott, Humaneity Founder and Tiny House Project Leader say’s, ‘ It’s been an absolute joy to have Ryan on our team. He has attended every meeting, provided great input to our project, and has not been scared to roll up his sleeves’
Just recently Ryan helped Matthew Webster the projects lead builder to lay the floor on the Tiny House Trailer. A job that took the two three hours to complete. A video on that experience can be found on the Humaneity Youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/Humaneity
Ryan says this about his involvement on the project,
‘ This project has already taken me to different kinds of places in my life, and I can see it has made me a better person, and made me more confident, happy, excited, and I am motivated to see this project through until the end and beyond.’

Thanks Ryan for joining us on the Humaneity Tiny House project, it’s great having you on board.
