What are you enjoying most about your job?
Always being around and working with animals everyday

What are you finding difficult in your role?
Seeing animals that are not well coming into the salon, I find it hard to keep my emotions under control when I see an animal suffering

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully have my own mobile grooming shop!

Has Generation NE helped you?
The programme has helped me get where I am today, if it wasn’t for Generation NE I wouldn’t have the job I have always dreamt of

Has your life changed since you became employed and how?
Yes as now I’m doing something I love, I’m starting a new chapter in my life and I’m hoping for a bigger future!
