During the pandemic, AVOW has welcomed a new team member to our BME Skills Project:
Hello from Anna
Hello, my name is Anna, and I am a BME Skills Project Officer based in Wrexham. I have studied Public Health and Wellbeing at Glyndwr University. Also, I hold a Social Work qualification in Poland. I have lived in the United Kingdom for the last twelve years. Over this time, I have met wonderful people with whom I have begun friendships. At the same time, I came across many people to whom, my knowledge, experience, or time helped in different ways.
The people, who know me describe me as open, friendly, and full of energy, and I have to add to this; I always have time for others and new ideas for new challenges.
In the meantime, I love to spend my free time gardening and reading. I spend my day makes flowers, and other peoples smile. I love my dog Bronagh who is an Irish Kerry Blue and she is a relentless walker. I am looking forward to meeting you all!
Warmest regards, Anna S.
