I am a case worker on RISE (Refugees Into Sustainable Employment). The aim of our work is to get refugees into work by supporting them to overcome social and personal barriers.
My skills & experience
I have been working on RISE since October 2019. The majority of my previous professional experience involved working with refugee communities on resettlement programmes, as well as civil protection, social integration and resilience projects in both the UK and Turkey.
My hobbies & interests
I really enjoy watching films (mostly social realism and documentaries) and listening to reggae, roots and ska. My guilty pleasure is to listen to hours of Britney Spears, Aaliyah and Destiny’s child … daily. I also really enjoy walking around parks and the city and going to cultural events. My favourite hobby is to spend time with friends and family outside on a sunny day. I also love to cook, bake and most importantly eat and share food.
