I came to Ireland 5 years ago. I joined Youthreach Ballinrobe straight away and my English was very bad. Youthreach was just like home. The teachers were like family. They were very patient with me.There was no difference between me and the Irish students, we are good friends and we still communicate. My English improved a lot. I spent 3 years in Youthreach Ballinrobe . Then I went to Westport College and did a Barbering course. I’m working in in a barber shop and I’m planning to open my own salon soon.
