So what's your plans for the future?

Well my plans for the future are political, can I be a Mayor of Reading one day, I think so. I think I've coped, I'm not ambitious as such, but I've got a lot of empathy, I work for social services, adults in community, I've done a lot of difference to several people. From a carer I've progressed and made sure that I got this job that I'm doing at the moment, not because of equal opportunities, because I could do something and I made sure that I got the job. I'm working as a Case Co-ordinator, planning to get trained and become a Social Worker. Contribute a lot to this community, make a difference to those that need it and do a lot with the community, continue lobbying with the Amnesty International about the rights of people, continue helping people with HIV in the community and also in Africa, making poverty history also, which are one of those things that I've done, going to Scotland. I want to make a difference in the world. It only takes a person to make a difference, it doesn't take a whole clan
