WEA Ambassador Amanda Derry

 


When suffering with a breakdown, I was mentored into a Creative Writing course. The idea of meeting people or taking part in activities was daunting, but with small steps, I rediscovered my writing skills and found this was aiding my recovery. This helped me gain confidence, become involved in community projects and expand my qualifications; eventually becoming a Support Tutor for the WEA. As an Ambassador, I would like to share my experiences to encourage potential students to try a course.
