Suffering from anxiety and depression while experiencing low confidence in her English skills, Jagoda is now looking forward to starting a college course and working towards her dream job.
Feeling she had ‘had enough of everything’ Jagoda wanted any possible form of support, not only to help with her mental wellbeing but to help her get a job that she was passionate about.
Reaching out to The Prince’s Trust, Jagoda was able to access regular therapy sessions with a Trust volunteer which improved her mental health.
She was also able to get advice about her Polish qualifications as she was finding it hard to convert them into the British system, which was proving a barrier to her accessing further education.
With this support, she was able to apply for a Fast Track to Finance course at Edinburgh college, passing an English exam and securing an unconditional offer.
