So I have completed my 90 hours of placement here with Cartwheel Arts! it has been a good experience of which I have learnt so much from. The most important thing I have learnt is to never let personal issues impact the outcome of your abilities, always push yourself further than you feel you can go and keep going because when you look back you will be so thankful.
I have come here to gain skills and experience in the social care field to help benefit my social care degree which I am working towards. I have met so many wonderful people who have helped me along the way, and I hope to keep coming along to all the different upcoming events through summer.
Today was my exiting interview with Gala, we went over all of my achievements over the time I have spent here, going over my weak areas, strong areas and how I have developed and improved along the way. I feel like I have come out a lot stronger, happier and focussed. I have found a balance within myself through the challenges I have faced here, and completed them even though sometimes I struggled.
So I would like to thank everyone I have worked with here at Cartwheel Arts for making me feel so welcome, and guiding me through my tasks. I have really appreciated all of the support and I hope to see everyone again through summer at the Darnhill Festival. I have almost finished my second year at university now, and I plan to move to Manchester over summer and see what my future has to offer me out there! 🙂
I hope you have enjoyed reading through my journey.
All the best 🙂
