Being a national ambassador has been an amazing experience, and I’m now more confident in my day-to-day life.

Meet national ambassador, Niomi 

“My journey really started when I found myself pregnant at 18. After some time living in a hostel, I managed to secure my first tenancy when my son was five months old.

“My mind has always been focused on helping improve the lives of young people, so I did community volunteering placements for various youth programmes.

“As a national ambassador, we were given an opportunity to help create more positive relationships between older and younger residents. By sharing our stories and views, we were able to help shift the perception of young people.

“Coming out the other side, being a national ambassador helped me better understand my purpose and decide exactly what I wanted to do while supporting others.”
