I’m a mum of 2-year-old twins so life is a bit hectic! I went through a hard time after splitting up with their dad and but things in general are good. At the moment I’m living at my mum’s but the house is very crowded, so on top of looking for a job, I'm also looking for a place to live.
I’ve always been keen to work but up until now I just haven’t been able to with the little ones. There are a few career pathways I like and am quite good at. I’ve got a qualification in beauty, but anything working with people would suit me. I really like talking to and helping others, so I'd like to work as a Support Worker ideally! Interacting with others is something I've always been good at and enjoy doing so for me it doesn't feel like work. There was a point when I was thinking about doing art therapy as well because I’m really into art, especially portraiture and textiles. I like to do things that are meaningful in my free time so I like being creative and making things for the boys, but that’s only when I have time between cleaning and tidying up!
My dream for the future is just to be settled with the boys and not have to rely on others. I want to be financially stable and have a nice home, and a reliable job that I enjoy.
Knowing that there is support out there is really nice, if I could do it for someone else as well I would. This kind of support is helpful for people like me who aren't in these positions by choice. I’ve always worked my whole life so having to rely on others is something I don't really like to do, but the fact there are people who want to help me achieve independence again is really nice.
