Marta Diaz

Marta is originally from Madrid in Spain but has lived in Salford for the last five years.

After gaining a degree in communications but struggling to find viable work in Spain, Marta made the decision to move to Salford in 2015 and now works in customer services for a large online travel website.

Marta’s first home with another housing provider was on the third floor of a building and had no lift which unfortunately became an issue for her when Marta was pregnant with her first child.

After moving into a Salix Homes’ property three years ago, she has grown to love her community and is keen to give something back to the people in it.

Marta said, “When I saw that Salix Homes was looking for customers to join its first ever Customer Committee, I was really interested in being involved. I love the community that I live in and I want to try and help to improve it further and support the people within it who welcomed me when I moved here from Spain.

“I’m also thankful for the opportunity the committee presents to grow personally and the experience I will gain from it”.
