I worked for a small charity based in Glasgow as a youth worker for 10 years. Our programmes mainly focused on easing the transition from primary to secondary school, but also included sessions on wellbeing, community engagement and tackling sectarianism. I was responsible for coordinating a group of young adult volunteers who supported this work, as well as delivering their training based on youth work and child protection.
I also studied floristry at college in Glasgow, Scotland – where I am originally from. This course allowed me to learn and develop new skills in both the business and creative aspects of floristry.
