I Decided to Follow My Passion

I lost the job I had and decided to follow my passion.  I started volunteering with Beyond Skin as a volunteer photographer.  Beyond Skin aims to promote community relations through the Arts. 

Basically I would recommend volunteering to anybody.  I wouldn’t be here if I hadn’t had the guts and signed up.  I would definitely recommend volunteering to international people.  Originally I am from South Africa and when I arrived in Northern Ireland I didn’t know anyone.  Through volunteering I have meet loads of creative and inspirational people that I never would have meet before.  I really feel empowered with my life now; I feel I can go somewhere.
