My goals in the roles are to help others access and achieve their further education goals, to help with any welfare issues any members have and to make sure all members know how Unison can help them with any issues around welfare and also to run groups and learning sessions for members and to run women only groups and to role out training sessions around women’s issues.
What advice would you give to your younger self?
The advice I would give my younger self is to take any educational opportunities you can while you are young and to be more self confident.
