Fund Tai to become a door supervisor

Story
News

Recently, I've found myself listening to a lot of motivational speakers - Eric Thomas, Simon Sinek, Oprah Winfrey. I realised that they all have something in common. They've all failed at some point in their lives. But they learnt from it and that's why they're successful today. This has really inspired me to not be afraid of failure, to aim high in life, and to never give up hope.

It's not always been easy to keep this outlook on life. In 2011 I applied for refugee status in the UK after civil war broke out in my country. The application took nearly seven years to be accepted - this meant seven years of not being allowed to work. During this time I became homeless and I felt really alone. But after finally receiving my residence permit, I was determined to better my situation. I found a room in the YMCA, and with their help I started thinking about my goals.

This course will let me find steady work in the security industry. I want to start saving for my own place to make sure I'm never homeless again. And this is just the beginning. In the future I want to go back to studying and use my language skills to train as an interpreter.

Due to the risk presented to the member by their past history, we've kept this profile anonymous by using a pseudonym.
