Change Direction Youth Mentor York & Selby

Date Started: 04/05/21

Responsibilities: I work with young people one to one and in groups within schools and out in the community. I also ensure that young people have access to the relevant support needed and use creativity and other activities to engage with young people across the York and Selby areas.

Favourite part of your job: My favourite part of my job is being able to help young people when they genuinely need it. It is an honor and privilege to be part of a young person’s journey and to see the progression they make is something I am very proud of. 

Hobbies/Interest: I enjoy making Hip-hop and Grime music in my spare time. I have written hundreds of songs over the years and to be featured on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 1Xtra is a real highlight in my life. I also enjoy spending time with my family, playing old video games and DJ’ing.
