Name: Karoline Beigley
Age: 18
Year of the Fix: 2014
Location: Inverness
Campaign: Showing the benefits of volunteering and unpaid work

I’ve always been quite a shy person and never really felt comfortable talking to people I didn’t know.

 

However, doing work experience for eight months as a shop assistant helped bring out my confidence and made me feel self-assured.

 

I don’t think enough young people are aware of the benefits of volunteering and how it can help later on in life.

 

With Fixers I have helped create a short film looking at my time as a voluntary member of staff.

 

Hopefully it will inspire more people in my age to take up unpaid work and gain valuable skills in the process.
