It’s #Iwillweek 2019! We’re celebrating young people taking action to show their peers they’re not alone. This case study just about sums it up!
“When I first started at BF I was really anxious and worried so much that for the first year or so my Mum would always stay and I would have to turn around and make sure where she was every few seconds.
Because I was so nervous I spent the first 2-4 years I was there working with nobody but Tony as he made me feel safe, secure and that I would be ok. As time has gone, and the more I stayed, I am now able to work with different instructors.
I have been at BF for the last 10 years and they have helped me through difficult times in my life, and changed my life for the better and I can’t thank them enough for everything they have done for me. BF means so much to me it has completely turned my life around and I can honestly say I don’t know where my life would be if I hadn’t started there.
Even after 10 years it still presents me with challenges. It has taught me skills never in my wildest dreams I would have thought about if I hadn’t been there.
Doing what I love at BF, they have helped me get through my problems and volunteering means I can help other people through theirs. I feel honoured and privileged to be volunteering and giving back to BF. Now that I am volunteering it gives me a chance to not only give back but to help and support young people who are as nervous as I was.”
