This Is Me
When people ask us what we do at the Young Women's Project it can be difficult to put it in to words, especially the impact our work has on the young women who come here. This video was made to capture the heart and soul of the Project, and to help people understand the journeys the young women walk with us. We first shared the video at our Record of Achievement event in June 2018 and it was so powerful that the room fell silent, everyone was so proud of their friends, family and most importantly of themselves.
We decided to share it on our Facebook page, within a week we had 3,271 views. Young women from past and present commented and shared their experiences of the Project and the impact it has had on their lives. Here are just a few of them:
"How lush I miss the project yous made me the woman I am today xxx"
"Amazing miss you all I wouldn't even be halfway to where I am now without you! Love this xxx"
"I really miss being there also, this video melts me as I no I wouldn't be where I am now if I didn't go there"
"I love it there good times xxxx"
"Beautiful video! I miss the project so much. Make me young again! Xx"
"Still always tell people about mine and Ellie's time and the project and show Ellie photos. Yous have all changed a lot of people's lives for the best and we are forever grateful x"
