Charmaine - Volunteer (student placement)

I did not expect at the beginning of my placement that I would get as much out of the experience as I did. Prior to my placement I didn’t have any real interest in working within the field of disability however, being a volunteer with Interchange has really changed that for me. Now the idea of working in disability is a real possibility for me to pursue as a future career choice. The experience as a whole not only gave me invaluable knowledge and skills for the future but it was also such a rewarding experience. Feeling like you’re making a difference in someone’s life is just so rewarding and amazing.
