Anita's Gap story
Having found it difficult to get a job without any work experience, Anita needed an opportunity that would give her a chance to show what she could do.
"The Prince’s Trust and Gap changed my life. I was struggling to find work and found myself in a hard situation, lacking direction in terms of what I was going to do next. I didn’t have experience, but The Prince’s Trust and Gap gave me an opportunity and one that I am so happy that I took part in!
"Before, I was feeling down on my confidence and wasn’t sure what to expect, but that changed as soon as I went to the first day of the Get into Retail programme, Everyone was so welcoming.
"The best thing about working at Gap are the friends that I've made and the people I've gotten to meet. I’ve also found it’s okay to ask for help and Gap have always encouraged us to ask questions, which helped me.
"Every day at Gap is great, and I’ve continued to develop here by completing workshops in visual merchandising and Gap support us with our career paths. There’s so much opportunity here and I feel very blessed to be part of an amazing team!
"Thank you to those of you challenging yourselve's to take on Future Steps, I challenged myself and it paid off! The Prince’s Trust helps transform young lives and with your support they can do so much more.
