I could not have asked for a better start to working at Young Gloucestershire. Everyone has been warm and welcoming. Being a part of this team’s means a lot to me.
I live in Cardiff and commute each day. At first I thought ‘am I doing the right thing?’ However each day I come into work it excites me. I am learning about the local areas of the County and it presents as a lovely place to live and work. I am currently setting up the next Hitz Rugby Programme. This is a twelve week development programme for young people who are NEET using sport as a tool to teach young people. Rugby has always been a passion being Welsh it runs through my veins. I currently coach Cardiff Blues schools academy Under 16 and support development of young people core values. Furthermore I have experience in helping young people fulfil their potential.
In the past, I’ve had a variety of jobs in Wales including: working for the home office as an immigration officer, the princes Trust, lecturing in Sport and also as a private body guard for the rich and famous. However I enjoy making a difference in young people’s lives and this is why I took up this role. I’m pleased to be joining Young Gloucestershire at this time with the Rugby world Cup on the door step, and hopefully I will be watching Wales lift the Trophy at Twickenham.
