Why she came on the Programme
At the time I was pursuing another career path but soon realised it was not going to happen which made me panic as I did not know what was going to happen or what I was going to do.
I always had an interest in beauty and had gained my Level 2 and 3 qualifications but had no clue about business and did not know where to start or where to go for help.
How has the programme helped her?
The Programme was a lifeline for me during one of the worst times of my life. It has given me confidence in myself and my abilities and the fact I have done what I set out to do has given me such a boost as I really doubted myself.
What are her key achievements?
The fact that I faced my demons, took responsibility and started my own business. I don’t procrastinate anymore and realise that the little things don’t matter as much. I have achieved what I set out to achieve and feel very proud.
Where she is now compared to start of programme
I am in a completely different and better world. I am in control now and am feeling genuinely happier and stronger and feel I can face issues better than ever before.
How she found the support from AEA?
The support was there when I needed it and was never over bearing. I could not have done what I have done without Kerry. Not only did I learn about enterprise but met new people and made new connections.
