I am at a stage in my life where I am now ready for a change. I have enjoyed participating with Covid Realities so much and being part of a collective voice. I have found my passion and want to explore opportunities through this for work. I'm trying to navigate living in a rural area, being a single parent to a young child and low income. Getting experience is really difficult as I have choices to make which could impact us financially short term but I am still paying off debts from starting onto UC. The changes in UC won't make much of a difference to me as I am on the lower pay scale being self employed.
