In Jaheera’s own words:
"Coming to The Write Time has given me a new outlook and improved my confidence, and I now feel ready to take the challenge of working and supporting my family."
In the views of TWT:
Jahera was referred by a friend to The Write Time.
From our first meeting, it was clear that Jahera was a determined person who wanted to change her life and improve her personal development and communication skills. She had limited retail work experience from 18 years ago but a wealth of experience of being a Carer and great organisational skills from supporting her 4 children and looking after her elderly family members.
Jahera came from a culture that did not support her working and was made to feel that she should be content to stay at home. She was fortunate to have a husband that supported her despite this causing unrest amongst the immediate family, Jahera came to The Write Time to improve her English, build her confidence and gain employability skills so she could look for work and feel valued. She wanted to be a positive role model for her children and show them through hard work how they can overcome barriers and achieve their goals. Jahera has a passion to support others and would like to use her nurturing personality and work in the Care Sector.
Jahera completed her English Entry Level 3 Functional Skills exam and secured a position as a volunteer companion/support worker at May Day hospital. The start date was postponed due to COVID-19. Jahera remains positive and keen to join the workforce and build her career. By attending group and 1-2-1 sessions Jahera improved her self-esteem and employability skills. She feels nervous but ready for the challenge of supporting her family and working at the same time. Jahera now feels empowered to keep learning new skills and move forward with her life and prove that she can have it all if she persists and remains determined.
