Back in 1991 I worked at the St Gabriel’s community centre for 6 weeks as a voluntary assistant. I worked with children creating games, painting and creating out door activities during the summer period.
From 1994 – 1997, I worked as a paid youth worker at John Ellis school, where I was in charge of organising a fashion show. This was done during school time so needed parent’s permission for the show to run. I also put the show on for the Mella celebrations and was televised at Cossington Street Park.
From 1992 – 2005, I worked for the Leicester city council as a Life Guard. I was also a summer play scheme leader, and a canoeing and swimming teacher, providing lessons for 4 – 15 year olds.
