Youth & Community Coach - Midlothian
I joined Street League in 2019 as a Youth and Community Coach. Coming from a footballing background, I have worked as a youth worker and football coach since 2014. I have a diploma in Youth Work, along with many SFA coaching qualifications. My main aim is to give people equal and fair opportunities by showing them that they can achieve anything if they believe in themselves.
I previously worked at Spartans Community Football Academy for 5 years since leaving high school in Edinburgh. Through this, I gained vital experience dealing with young people from many different backgrounds and different circumstances. In my spare time, I play football for East Of Scotland team, Leith Athletic FC.
Street league is giving opportunities to young people who need that extra support, something I would have loved to have had the opportunity to get involved in when I was at school.
To work for a company that gives people the things I missed out on is a great feeling and a reason why I love my job.
