I came to the UK more than a decade and a half ago. I worked for several years in an administrative role, which enabled me to make use of my multilingual proficiency. I gained my diploma in Public Service Interpreting, and I have begun work as a professional interpreter gaining additional professional experience focussing upon issues from both sides of the legal standpoint. I served as a volunteer for several years providing free help and advice to anyone in need. I encountered many different issues within the community, and thusly developed an in-depth understanding of them. I am a community coordinator of a community organisation which deliver a variety of projects in conjunction with the Local Authority and other partner agencies. Throughout many years I have gained extensive knowledge about issues faced by the community. I am a mother of two boys and currently pursue a career in law to become a barrister, particularly in the desire to extend ways in which I can benefit the community.
