On reflection the EPEV for me has been more than a Programme. It has been a community.
The programme through my mentor has helped me in several ways. Luke encouraged me to believe in my dreams and not to think that my dreams are too BIG. Throughout the course of the year, I have learnt the importance and relevance in taking small steps towards my goals. I want to serve, in some way, the people of Wales by using my voice to help effect positive change.
The year has presented me with opportunities to participate in trying to work towards a Wales that supports, welcomes and uplifts marginalized people namely refugees and people of colour through an interview on BBC News and through leading The Aberystwyth Anti-Racism Rally. The programme has helped me to learn about the plight of and challenges faced by all marginalized groups.
