CIC – Bethnal Green

I came in the UK for a year, maximum two, because I needed a change of scenery – that was in 2012.

When I realised that I love England and I want to stay here, I joined MET as a volunteer with the aim to become a detective. I always wanted to work with the police and help people in any way I can.

I never imagined that an email about the Divert programme will change my life by giving me the opportunity to help and support young people towards a better life.

Since 2017, when I start being part of the programme, I have seen young people changing their life and others giving up for a while and trying again. My colleagues and I are here to offer them a hand when needed.

I like working with children and young people, I love walks in the nature and animals.
