SHE Team/Ambassadors

Ambassador Development Worker

Lauren Auld

"I get a real sense of privilege from being an ambassador. The young women that we work with are essentially letting us into their lives, trusting us with their thoughts and feelings which isn't always easy but I'm always so grateful that our young women trust us and we don't take that responsibility lightly.

 

The positive impact that the programmes have on girls and young women varies so greatly from one person to the next. We more than often see confidence increases, a sense of pride, community spirit, a boost of their self esteem and most of all feeling listened to without feeling embarrassed or judged.The benefits are very easy to recognise."

Mind, Body and Soul Worker

Jenny Pullen

"Having been part of the SHE team for some time, I feel that I have gained a great deal of knowledge from the members of the communities that we work in, the staff, and the young women involved in our projects. I really enjoy working with the organisation, and the best way I can explain this is by saying I started with SHE on an 8-week placement in January 2020 and haven't left!

 

It really has been incredible to see changes in the young women from the start to finish of a program.  In week 1 being non-verbal, making no eye contact to being fully engaged and laughing is simply amazing to see.  From the outwards looking in, it may not seem much, however, when you see firsthand the increase in confidence, self-esteem, and body language you can fully appreciate how important the work that SHE carries out is."

Amanda Redpath

Circle Time girls worker

"I’m always in a good mood when I’ve completed SHE seasons the work gives me a buzz and my mental health is greatly improved after years of suffering from dark moods this has gave me a new lease of life. I’m proud of the work I do and I’m proud of me and how much I have achieved over the last 3 years. Being an Ambassador has gave me focus and for the first time for many years I feel that I can do whatever I want. I’m happy once again and I understand the issues that some woman face in there daily struggle with life."

SHE Circle Time Worker

 

"I love being an ambassador, it has given me more confidence and I feel better about myself,  I feel I'm making a difference.

 

I can see the girls gain confidence in themselves, In week 1 they are shy and quiet and then as the weeks go on they get to know you more and open up more."
