I’m really proud of what I’ve achieved so far. I’ve never been a confident person, so the thought of work experience and spending time with a group of strangers seemed impossible. Now everything’s changed - I completed work experience with the National Animal Welfare Trust at Heaven’s Gate and met some lovely people. This valuable experience reinforced that looking after animals really is my dream job.
