I’ve always been somebody who cares about helping people. Contributing like this is important to me. Whenever you give something to others, it makes you feel like you are a part of something.
I came to the UK as a refugee almost three years ago, to seek protection. After I was granted my status at the end of last year, I became homeless - I wasn't allowed to work while waiting for my application to go through, so couldn't save up to move into my own place. Charities have helped me since this time, and I'm now working towards having a permanent place to live, which will hopefully be resolved soon.
Dental nursing is a new direction for me, and I’m looking forward to learning the skills that will let me be a good dental nurse! This will let me help others in a new way. Importantly, this path will also provide me with a means to live.
It’s been a difficult past three years, which sometimes affects me - but I’m eager to keep moving forward with building a career, a family, and the best version of myself.
