"My hope for the future is for there to be equal opportunities for all, and that no one is judged on their heritage and race. Sharing my story has enabled me to reflect on my journey of how I have gotten to where I am today and has served as motivation on why I am pursuing my goals. I personally want to help others through my story and tell you that it is never too late to reach your goals and to be proud of what you have achieved so far and to create positives from negatives."
"My hope for the future is for BAME ( Black, Asian and minority ethnic) to have equal opportunities and not be judged on their heritage and race. "
"I hope that my story resonates with anyone with health conditions, mental illness, or learning disabilities. I want you to know that you are more than your conditions, illnesses, or disabilities. They may limit what you can do, but they do not define your dreams or who you are. You are strong for living life the way you are. Be yourself and keep heading towards your goals. Now, more than ever, anything is achievable."
"Being myself was exactly what they were looking for.
I was hired, made Team Leader (...) My so-called weirdness and qualities that I thought would get me nowhere, were loved and an asset to the department."
"I hope that by sharing my story, that I can be a great role model to other young people and hope to one day stand in front of others and share my story. It’s important to come out of your comfort zones and sometimes admit to ourselves that we can’t make it on our own and it’s ok to let others help you."
"Quite often I ask myself: “Is there is a book or a manual that explains how to deal with emotions, barriers, or simply, how to deal with everyday life?” Very often I can’t find the answer, because there probably is no book that can give me the answers that I am looking for. "
