Emma’s story

Student

Volunteer

I had low confidence and believed I couldn’t achieve anything…I am really proud of what I can now achieve.

When I first came to the Recovery College I had low confidence and believed I couldn’t achieve anything.

I went on a book folding course and I was shown how to fold a book into a love heart – then I ordered my own patterns book. I now have sold some as Christmas presents and every one says how great they are. I can now do any patterns…here is a picture of what I can do and I am really proud of what I can now achieve.

I have even gone on to teach the book folding course at the Recovery College myself now!
