Who am I as a human?
Thinking back to when I was working in the public sector, helping the homeless and their complex needs. I was very happy here, being able to help the people that were among some of the most disadvantaged in society was the most rewarding feeling, and I was good at it. Helping people to get to a better place from rock bottom was one of the most fulfilling things I have ever done.
Many years later and the natural progression for me was to move into the field of mental health. Supporting people in a time when they were going through something very traumatic in their life. I worked in psychiatric units and crisis teams in the community, and for a while I loved it. Seeing the change in people individually to a place where they didn’t even recognise themselves.
