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.”
