I have worked with Nova New opportunities since 2006. In 2012, I had the opportunity to refer two individuals to Novafor supported work placements. The two clients we placed at Nova have built up a great deal of confidence and work skills, which will be imperative once they go into paid employment.
When I first came to Nova I was looking for a direction. I was new in London, pretty excited and kind of lost. I was overwhelmed by so many big opportunities wrapped in even bigger challenges. Nova’s staff helped me to add a sense of purpose to my quest for a professional realisation. Working as a volunteer for Nova gave me the opportunity to improve myself and my curriculum, and I’m so glad to have achieved that with people that really cared about me. Today I’m a better professional, more confident and prepared for the challenges ahead of me, and I’m truly grateful for the role Nova played in it.
