Çîroka Olivia

Olivia* is a young person who had a life-changing experience with 1625. When she first came to the 1625, she was shy and anxious, avoiding interactions with her support worker, Emma. She was a single parent, taking care of her child alone.

Emma persisted in offering Olivai support, recognising her potential. As a result,  her confidence began to soar. Emma praised her for her commitment to breastfeeding, even during the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. This encouragement made her feel proud, inpiring her to consider helping others. Building a strong bond with Emma, she achieved significant milestones that seemed small to others but were monumental for her personal growth. Overcoming anxieties and stepping out of her comfort zone, she enrolled in college with the support of 1625, although it didn’t work out due to childcare limitations. Undeterred, she was motivated to explore new opportunities.

Bi rêberiya Emma, wê li pubek kar peyda kir, xwest ku dîsa bixebite. Mixabin, dema ku wan kifş kir ku ew ducanî ye û neçar ma dev ji kar berde, rewş guherî. Digel vê yekê, wê bi biryar bû ku hilberdar be û bi navgîniya ajansekê ve karek bi zarokxanê re peyda kir, hemî dema ku perwerdehiya li kêlekê qedand. Emma berdewam kir ku piştgirîya bêserûber peyda bike û wê piştrast kir ku baş e ku meriv bi leza xwe bixebite. Dema ku wê biryar da ku ew dem e ku betlaneya dayikbûnê bigire, wê eleqeya xwe ji bo destpêkirina karsaziyek diyariyek kesane diyar kir. Emma wê teşwîq kir ku lêkolîn bike û plansaziyek karsaziyê pêş bixe, û bi piştgirîya 1625-an, fon hate peyda kirin, ku hişt ku ew ji malê dest bi kar bike.

Olivia expressed immense gratitude for the incredible support and opportunities provided by 1625. Her children were her priority, and with Emma’s assistance, she was able to provide for her family. The support enabled her to begin an entrepreneurial journey, nurturing her passion for crafting and personalised gifts.

Li paşerojê dinêre, ew plan dike ku hunera xwe bidomîne, karsaziya xwe ji malê ava bike, û bigihîje aramiya darayî da ku ji zarokên xwe re ezmûnên ecêb biafirîne. Wê xwest ku pêwendiya xwe bi 1625-an re bidomîne, pejirand ku hîna wê hîn pir tişt hebû ku fêr bibe û bi ser bikeve. Her çend ew bêtir serbixwe bû, wê li piştgiriyek domdar geriya da ku fikarên xwe bi rê ve bibe û rê li ber pirsgirêkên karsaziyê bigire.

Bi kurtkirina serpêhatiya xwe ya bi 1625-an re, wê spasiya xwe ya kûr diyar kir û li ser mezinbûna kesane ya mezin a ku wê jiyabû rawestiya, xwe nêzîktir hîs kir ku bibe kesê ku ew her gav dixwest bibe.
