This is Catriona’s story where the National Citizen Service has helped her overcome her nerves and to grow in confidence.
“I would 100% recommend doing Action4Youth NCS. It helped with my confidence, and helped me build friendships that I know will last a long time because we’re very similar.”
“Aisha, she was in my school but we have grown stronger, and I’ve met new people in my team. We all have different personalities, so we learn how to talk to a different individual that we wouldn’t speak to before. We get along very well.”
“My best moment I think is when we were all kayaking, and our team leader called Tom and his whole kayak flipped over, and that was just funny.”
“When I did the Dragon’s Den I was very nervous at the start. But then I learned to represent myself so it has helped me have a voice. They are asking you questions and you have to think of something. So I think that has helped because then I can go into a situation and learn how to cope with the nerves, and ok I can do this.”
