Faces of Fostering – Byron on the importance of having his own money

Faces of Fostering – Byron on the importance of having his own money

It’s really important for me to earn my own money for my future.

When I left school, I wanted to be active rather than do nothing. However, we were in lockdown, and I stayed in and played on the X box for a couple of months, but I got bored. So, I got a job part-time cleaning cars and studying Level 3 in Car mechanics. I have been there for over two years; however, I want to get a job in a garage when I get my level 3 Car mechanics next month.

I live in Blackpool, and my job is in Preston, but I have my bike. So, I cycle to the train station, get on the train, and then cycle to my job, I like working at the car wash because its earning money, it is keeping me active and teaching me about having a job. My boss is a good person, and this job means I can afford to keep my flat going, pay my bills, and follow Manchester United.

My dream job is not in a car dealership; I want to work in a smaller garage where I feel I would belong, and it is with a smaller group. Ultimately, it will be somewhere that I can carry on learning my trade. I don’t mind where it is, I have my bike, and I’m happy to commute.

I have been told a couple of times by people at Caritas Care and Lucy that I am good with children. Maybe they like me because I tall, I am a giant to them and possibly because I understand them as I have been through similar things to them? Maybe it’s because when I was younger, I also had major issues? However, I like helping out with the younger children, it is a nice feeling when I do this, and Caritas Care is great because they make you feel you belong.

Note: Byron has currently and successfully completed his Level 3 Car mechanics course and is now looking for employment.  Please get in touch if you could offer Byron the opportunity of an interview.
