 About Training

Great Tutor, made the course fun but educational. K.B Crafts for Everyone

I produced my story which was an excellent personal exercise to review my background, I also used it as to showcase my year as a volunteer and I email the link to my grandparents in Mozambique whom haven’t seen me since 1996 and thanks to it they got to know how I am, what I am doing in Wales and it just made us feel closer.
