Have you ever been in a team that just doesn't function?
In our last blog post we had a look at the life of a typical young person from the Belvoir/Milltown estate in South Belfast. Today, we’re going to step into the shoes of a young person from Dundonald.
This week, we’ll be looking at a group that is slightly closer to home, so to speak. A group that faces an entirely different set of struggles, but are nonetheless in as much need of as any group we work with. Picture this: you are Danny, a 14 year old boy from the Milltown estate in South Belfast.
Picture this: You are Diana, a 12 year old girl from a small village in Romania. Your family has left your home because of a chance at a better life in Northern Ireland.
In today’s society there is something that every teenager wrestles with. It’s something that must be confronted constantly - in front of the mirror, when watching TV, by the shop window, and around every corner of social media...I’m talking about self-esteem.
