One of my portfolio photos of me at work

Lots of good news!

⭐ I've been working hard and have completed my portfolio of work experience. I'll submit the photos of the work this week and it gets sent off to another body who review it. Then I'm allowed to sit my ACS course.

⭐ I've already booked my fault finding course for later in the year.

⭐I'm also working with Vets Aid to look at moving into my own place. It's a Vets nomination scheme so I will have to wait for something suitable to come up.

⭐And of top of all of this I quit smoking.

I'll keep you updated on how it all goes.

It's exciting to have launched my second campaign! It means a lot to me - this qualification is going to change my life. I can look forward to freedom and getting on with my life. It feels proactive. Thank you to everyone who has and will support me.

I'll be releasing a video to let you know how it is going...! 🎉
