Having someone there to help out and take interest in what I was doing and what I was hoping to achieve greatly improved my opportunities and attitude. When I was still at school there were many times where I felt like just leaving due to conflicts in my personal life.

“I struggle to think where I would be without it.”

Having the support of a dedicated person convinced me to stay on and sit my exams after almost leaving 2-3 months before. I’m more active in my approach with what I want to do because with a little push from people I was able to actually get somewhere. All it took was a bit of a shove in the right direction and someone like my MCR Mentor to take an interest in me to go from potentially nothing to now attending college and having a job. A lot of opportunities opened up for me through this kind of help and I’m glad I was given it and I struggle to think where I would be without it.”

“I am still in touch with my mentor even after all of these years.”

“I’m now on my 4th year at university and aim to finish with a 1st Level Degree.”

“My Mentor has helped me aim high in life.”
