Billie-Jo has come a long way since starting Talent Match and achieved a lot including: emotional resilience, coping strategies, qualifications, volunteering and gained hope for the future. She is now empowered to make decisions for herself and has a clear vision of what she wants to achieve. She has now signed up to start a full time college course to study Childcare.
Billie-Jo wants to eventually work in a care home. For this she will use her own life experience as well as the skills she has learnt from being mentored by myself and from her training where she has gained a level 4 qualification in Mentoring. She is now volunteering as a Mentor, where she is learning about boundaries and safeguarding as well as gaining valuable work experience of working with children and young people.
This is a massive achievement for Billie-Jo from having such a rough and traumatic start in life she is very resilient and determined to do well.
