Self description

Female , 30

I have experience of working with the arts and cultural sector as well as the third sector. I am currently employed as a Project Assistant within a youth art charity. Within my role I have also undergone six days of AQA accredited training as a Peer Motivator.

I graduated in Psychology from the University of Southampton in 2009.

Before college I received very little formal education, and I feel this was to my benefit rather than to my detriment.

I have a keen interest in an eclectic range of music, as well as playing the electric and acoustic guitar. I enjoy watching a variety of films, particularly international and horror films, as well as various Japanese anime series. In my spare time I also enjoy swimming, reading, and arts and crafts including painting and constructing collages on canvas.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
