“I joined HeadStart because I wanted to volunteer and help people in my community; the programme also gave me an interview experience which will help me in my future.
I volunteered at Enfield Stars; a charity that works with young adults with additional needs. The experience was strange at first but I got used to it. Through this opportunity I learned how to communicate and help adults who have additional needs. I was working with people who were different from me and I’ve learnt that I need to just be myself and I can get along with everyone. The best part of this experience was seeing the young adults smiling. Being able to help them have a great day made me feel good.”
