Service users look up to me, which I think is a good thing, because a lot of them have not had any direction in life… that’s the difference I want them to feel.
A lot of the time, service users have never had respect before, and I like to think that I’m the difference they need to inspire change in their lives.
I have lots of positive conversations with service users, and this is definitely where I feel like I’m able to be the difference they’re looking for.
It’s always our aim to be the difference in someone’s life. It makes me feel so much better… and then I know I’ve done a great job.
We’re not in it for the money. Being the difference by making small changes in people’s lives is why we’re here.
My strength is that I’ve got a lot of patience, even in difficult situations, and I think that’s where I make a difference to people.
