Laura has recently started at The HUB as a new Project Worker, here is her ‘about me’
Hi everyone! I’m Laura, a ‘proper northern lass’ who has recently moved to the island with my Fiancé and fur-children… When I heard that The HUB were recruiting for a Project Worker I jumped straight in! I knew in my heart-of-hearts that this job was for me and true to that, it definitely is. I have been working at The HUB as a full-time Project Worker for just over a month now and have quickly fallen in-love with my new job! The motivation for helping young people shines through every day from my colleagues and our volunteers. It is inspiring to work in such a passionate, friendly and dedicated environment that is focused on helping young people the best we can. I am really looking forward to establishing new groups (that are hopefully starting soon!) organising exciting events, meeting new people and developing myself through my career at The HUB.
On the flip side, I am a proud owner of two gorgeous hounds: Poppy (Sighthound Lurcher) and Paddy (Border Collie) – he would walk the earth if we let him and he still would want another walk afterwards! We do enjoy walking long distances with them and tiring their little feet out. I have also just adopted two uber cute Guinea Pigs from the GSPCA who I have named ‘Heathcliff and Edgar’. Tea time is usually busy in our household: cooking for my partner and I, feeding the dogs some sort of kibble-y meaty dish, then veggies for the pigs!
Family aside: I am a weight-lifter hoping to enter some on-island/UK competitions in 2017. I also enjoy reading English Literature, studying Psychology, hoovering, ironing and rustling up new food dishes! My specialities are Shepherd’s Pie and Cadbury cheesecake.
