Leila’s story

“During Spear I learnt a lot about myself and what stands out to me is my resilience and my confidence…These two qualities have served me well, as during lockdown I decided to apply for a job in care and now I work as a Care Assistant in a BUPA Care Home. The job isn’t easy and wasn’t my first choice for starting a career but it has already taught me so much, taken me out of my comfort zone and developed my confidence. I am now part of a frontline team serving the vulnerable through this crisis and I am proud of my job.”
