Winner's Story: Skills for Care
My biggest ambition in life is to become a doctor and serve people of all ages. I was hugely inspired by my GP who once told me about the importance of doctors and the difference they make in many people’s lives. Hearing this influenced me greatly and helped me to decide what I wanted to do in the future.
I received an email from MyKindaCrowd which introduced me to the Skills for Care ThinkCare challenge. This was my chance to get creative and show my passion for making a difference in people’s lives.
I couldn’t get started on my ideas fast enough! Knowing that my work could be developed and showcased at an exhibition as well as getting the chance to carry out work experience in a social care setting was extremely appealing.
I was really determined to win, I stayed up late finishing my submission. I wanted it to shine, so I put together as many ideas as possible and gave it my all. The opportunity was so important to me, I was nervous I would miss the deadline – but there was no way I was going to let this experience pass me by.
A week passed and I got a message from the MyKindaCrowd team. I was confused at first. I never thought they would be congratulating me as the winner of the challenge. I was ecstatic and over the moon!
I can’t wait to see my work developed and showcased at the Annual Skills for Care Exhibition.This summer is going to be a summer I will never forget. I will have the chance to carry out work experience in a social care setting.
Thanks to MyKindaCrowd and Skills for Care!
