My main motivation is my son and all my family who live in Venezuela. I want to be a strong, independent woman who is a good example for my son. I want to teach him that the things are achieved with effort and work.
My son and I were left homeless and I was also left unemployed because we were victims of domestic violence. We had to leave our home and all of our belongings to go to a shelter where my ex-partner could not find us. Things have been improving little by little, since we got to the shelter. It was there that we found a support worker who has helped us to overcome what we both experienced. She also put me in touch with Beam who are working with me to help me back into the labor market, so that I can independently support myself and my son.
I'm excited to train as an accountant because it is what I've always wanted to study. I like to analyse the financial situations of companies. To see if the expected income is being obtained and if not, provide solutions on how to overcome this. I want to get a job as soon as possible in a solid company that gives me the opportunity to develop professionally, as well as providing me with the stability to do things I really enjoy with my son, like going to the beach.
I'm really excited to start earning so I can work towards saving for my son's future and saving to buy my own house. This will give both me and my son stability. I would also eventually love to have my mother with us as she's in Venezuela and I've not seen her in a very long time.
