During this time, I worked with children of all ages and backgrounds and spent six months working as a day-carer/teacher for a group of children with various learning difficulties. Before I embarked on the teaching journey - amongst other jobs - I had spent over 7 years working with Steen The Chef delivering monthly cooking sessions to disadvantaged children in various poor communities around Bristol. This was something I always loved doing purely because of how passionate I was (am) about working with kids.

What is it about PA work which appeals to you? *: Alongside everything Ive said so far, there is another core aspect that drives my passion for working closely with people, and that just the fact that I really enjoying communicating with - and caring for - people. I strive to understand how a person functions and what their needs are, then take time to examine exactly how I can accommodate those needs.
