Empowered to try something new

Recently, Monica took part in VALID’s online Keys to Success training and found the course empowering and informative. Here is what she had to say.

I loved the time of day that the course was on, the general knowledge about the country and how it runs, etc. I really liked the battery changing idea and the personal stories of people’s lives to explain about the lesson, that was really helpful. I enjoyed the way the meeting was run and the fact that we could have general discussions and hear others opinions.

I felt I needed to find out how to pay utility bills and after the course I felt empowered to talk to my parents. I feel empowered to try something new that maybe I wouldn’t have done in the past, eg. the job we talked about. The course was a good reminder of my rights and how to use my voice. I learnt that I should trust  my emotions. I enjoyed the games that we played to go over what we’d learned and how we were all included by reading the power point.
