I want to do something with my life, to have a purpose I can move towards, and to feel that each day matters. I've got the potential, and with Beam's help I'll soon have the skills to do something of worth to people, to make a difference.
I've been told that I have business acumen, and I want to use this. I like to take responsibility, to set the direction, to lead. Right now I'm aiming to work in project management within a dynamic, forward looking company. It would be rewarding to work in a company that engaged with social issues as well. One day in the future, I’d like to be the owner of my own business, but right now I’m ready to learn and apply my skills to help businesses prosper.
In 2017 I was unfairly evicted from my flat. I had nowhere to go and my life got turned upside down, and for 18 months it was a bit of a nightmare. It's crazy how quickly it can happen to you, that one day you have a home and the next day you don't. I'm thankful for those people who supported me during that period, I don't know where I'd be without them.
I'm really looking forward to the feeling of having stability again: to work regular hours and receive a regular income. I'd also love to be somewhere more central, it would make such a difference to my life. I'm excited to be more connected with people again. It can be hard to stay connected when you're out of work.
I'm feeling more positive now, like I'm starting to turn my life around. I want to improve my situation, bit by bit. This is why I’m working with Beam, to continue making steady progress in my life and to move towards my goals. One day not too far from now, I'll be able to feel satisfied that I'm doing something of value.
