“I have never really felt good enough for college or university. I felt my grades weren’t good enough, and at the time of taking my GCSEs my Dad was dying. I didn’t really care about my education.
“A few months ago, I felt really unhappy - I wanted to get out of the situation I was in at that time. I was in a domestic violent relationship and desperately wanted to move out of the house I was in.”
“I have a beautiful little boy to think about - this situation wasn’t good for him either.”
“My Talent Match Coaches supported me to find accommodation at Green Gables. For me this was a priority before I could even think about my education, I had started to believe in myself again.
“Once I had secured a home they supported me to get some money so I could live independently and not rely on anybody else. I started to think about college as I wanted to give my little boy a better future and be a good role model.”
“I am now attending Doncaster College, where I am doing a Level 4 Higher National certificate in computer and systems development.
“My confidence is better, I am happy and I feel like I am not wasting my life. I feel like I can provide a better future for my son and myself. Without Talent Match none of this would have been possible.”
