On My Nomination
Being Nominated as an Unsung Local Hero category for the ITV Meridian region for Pride of Britain’s award is really an honour and a privilege for me, as there are so many other people going the extra mile to make a difference in the life of others.
“When they told me who nominated me, I was quite chuffed because I thought it’s not just for me it’s for everyone else who makes my work happen. There are so many amazing people out there sacrificing their time and energy just to make a difference. It overwhelmed me.”
When I set up The Happiness Project, it was my way of contributing to society as their was a period in my life when I was really depressed and down. I was fortunate to get help and support from various organisations family and friends.
Who Nominated Me
My sincere thanks to Ayhan and his wife for nominating me for this award.
I met Ayhan about 15 years ago when he was one of my students at a bookkeeping course I was teaching at the One Love Centre in East London.
He showed so much potential, that I made him my assistant during the lessons. I stayed in touch with him after the course and when I was leaving my job as a tutor in Greenwich Community College, I recommended him to the college to take over my role, which he did brilliantly.
Since then, I have mentored him through his journey in the accountancy profession and I am proud to say that he has gone on to set up his own successful accountancy services – ASR Accountancy. I am so appreciative of Ayhan and his wife
