I think we all have something in common when it comes to our unusual life journeys, far away from the mainstream, less boring and truly not that what our parents had expected when we were tiny and cute. 

That’s why I hung out with the ‘wrong people’ back in earlier times and no surprise, became pregnant when I was a teenager. Since then, I have changed. I’ve changed my lifestyle, finished my apprenticeship as an Office Administrator, studied Finance & Management and worked hard to make the best of my daughter’s life. As a single mum, it wasn’t easy, but for whatever reason, I like challenges. In 2016 we thought it was time for us to move from Germany to London, learning a second language, another culture and perhaps most importantly, new life skills.

In 2019 I decided to change my career into finally doing something more meaningful as I couldn’t find that sense in my previous jobs - no offense.

I started volunteering at BoB’s weekend service in Shepherd’s Bush, where for the very first time I really understood how much pain my father might have suffered while I ignored the fact; that addiction is a health problem and not just a self-created mess.

Being in that service, talking to service user and volunteers, listen to their stories and telling mine, let me realise, how much it means if you can just be yourself without any pre-judgement.

I mean, where can you find places like that those days?  

Bringing my financial and organisational background to BoB and having the flexibility to work in the office and to support my colleagues in their services, it’s exactly what I was looking for.  

The work we do, gives us a real purpose, keeps us granted and grateful.

It’s great to be a part of our BoB family. 😊
