Map showing where Shirley Graham-Paul came from

This was voluntary work that you took up, was it Shirley?

Yes, you had to be trained for four years. And then you'd give them back the time because they pay for your training. So after you've done the time then you've got to give them back their time and then you start being paid. So I started doing that voluntarily but, our folks abuse the situation, it's free so they come for a little while and they feel good and they don't even tell you they're not coming back. So you're sitting there ... wasting an hour and I thought no, I don't know if this is what I'm meant to be doing. So I left that.
