Life has been OK recently, but thinking about work and how to get a job and my own place to live has been stressful. I came to the UK a couple of months ago and have been living at my sister-in-law’s house since; I cannot stay living here and want to move out into my own place but currently cannot afford to do that. Back in Nigeria I worked for many years as a sales manager for a mobile phone company, but have not been able to get a job here yet.
The dream is to go to nursing school, but everything is on hold for now because I’m not in the right place financially. I'd like to find a job in care in the meantime as I have experience caring for the elderly, and really enjoy keeping them company and interacting with them. I also think this would be good experience for my long term goal to become a nurse; I like to take care of people and love it when people are in good health.
Although things have been stressful, I stay positive by reading a lot and educating myself about new things; I love to keep learning! I also just really like looking after the home and my family. I would love to be independent financially, if only so I can help other people around me, and am so grateful for the support because that is what I love doing for others.
