The course so far is quite fast and challenging.

At the end of this week, I will be taking the first test in environmental technology. I hope I will sail through as it is considered to be the easiest of the year.

Wish me luck 🤞

I have been asking myself where the time goes by since I last spoke to you. Everyday brings something new and challenging!

The course is well on its way with six subjects in total. The most interesting for me so far is the design of electrical installation.

As the new academic year begins, I am delighted to say that, thanks to you, I have just completed the first two orientation days. On the eve of the first day, I had an unsettled night with excitement and anticipation about what the new day would bring.

When I arrived in this totally unfamiliar building, it brought me back memories similar to when I started going to school. The two days flew by getting to know the surrounding with each other and the curriculum. Great to get going!

During the past weeks, apart from looking for a job I have been occupied with a course in Painting and Decorating.

It helped me to have a broader idea about trades and acquire new skills. Going forward, the good news is that this Tuesday I will go and enrol myself at the college for the coming year in Electrical Installations L3.

I just thought that you might like to see one of my creations in mosaics that I have been doing in the evenings.

Finishing off the wall that I've tiled

Over the past few weeks, lots of interesting things have been happening. As well as being in the middle of applying for the Level 3 Electrical Installations, I have been tying up a few training sessions in Tiling and Carpentry. 🔨

As far as back as I can remember, I have been inspired, amazed and impressed by the very detailed and creative ways that people have worked with these materials. So pleased that I have the time to see what I can produce.

Until the next time, I hope the good weather is being good to you. ☀️ Thanks again!

Completing my last practical assessment in "Testing Electrical Installations"

Congratulations and well done to everyone for achieving top marks in the last and one of the most challenging and difficult tests known as " Principles of Electrical Science".

Completing electrical installations training

Since my last contact, I have been busy studying towards the last challenge of the current course in Electrical Installations. It has been very interesting and I am looking forward to completing this course in two weeks time. 💡

In addition to my studies, I have taken the time to revisit the website and read how everyone is progressing.

I have been reflecting on the amazing response received from hundreds of people and your endless interest and encouragement you have instilled in us. I really thank you and appreciate the way you believe in me which helps me believe in myself.

I would like to thank you for your kind support over the past three weeks that will certainly go long way to help me achieve my goal. Your generous contributions are keeping me positive and motivated as the time to begin my training draws near.

Above is a photo of me with one of my recent assessments in the Tiling course I've been attending to.

This is me with my certificate for one of the five modules - I got a distinction this Wednesday!

Since publishing my story I have been overwhelmed by the huge response from each and everyone of you who contributed to enable me start on this exciting new challenge. I am sincerely touched that you took the time to get to know me and my situation.

I have just completed my final practical assessment this week and I am delighted to say that I was successful. I will be busy studying from now till the end of this month for my final two exams. I am very positive about facing these and I know deep down that the kindness you expressed will guide me all the way to succeed.

My campaign just went live!

It feels amazing because I am going to be one step ahead to my goal. I am a little bit nervous, of course. I am looking forward to finish successfully the campaign. I am looking forward to reading the messages on my profile - it will be really motivating! I would like to say thank you for the support and I want to show you that the money will go to a good place.
