Trunesh's story - Happy memories
Trunesh first started attending activities with Worth Unlimited Waltham Forest in the summer of 2014, when she was 15 years old. For several years, she was a regular attender at Youth Bus sessions, took part in lots of positive activity workshops in drama, cooking, dance and art and went on various trips and residentials.
Now 20 years old and working as a full-time childcare worker, Trunesh popped in to say ‘hi’ and catch up with some of the staff. She said that she had recently been going through her old photos of the Worth Unlimited residentials that she had attended, which had brought back many happy memories for her.
She thanked the team for taking her on the residentials and spoke of her first encounter with Worth Unlimited. In 2014, she had been going through a difficult phase where she was very closed off and felt unable to go out of the house and do anything, when she received a leaflet through her door inviting her to attend a drama workshop near to where she lived.
“The workshops helped me meet new people. The staff were very warm and welcoming, I felt really accepted and valued… The activities gave me somewhere to put my energy into”.
