It has been about five years - I heard about it through friends and also from my school, Samuel Rhodes.

What do you do at Lift?
Archery, cooking, podcasting, youth sessions, video chat and I did a bike maintenance course as part of Summerversity. I got a bike at the end of the week I still have. I like coming down and just chilling.

How has Lift helped you?
I used to have anxiety and now I have gained confidence and met lots of new people. It is all about the culture. You meet people from all over the world with different backgrounds and learn about their music, food and culture. It's amazing and a blessing - so many talented people. It's incredible.

What is the most important thing you have learnt at Lift?
I learnt interview skills and CV writing. This led to an internship at Moorfields Eye Hospital which I love.

What is the most fun you have ever had?
Definatley the cooking - and meeting new people.

What would you say to a young person that has never been here before?
This place has a great vibe, you will feel safe and you are surrounded by good people like Nathan and Judith.

What do you hope to be doing in three years’ time?
I want to still be coming to Lift, keep working hard and expand my skills.

How is Lift helping you get there?
Networking. And Lift helped me to become a youth councillor which taught me alot.

Creative cooking
