Jessica Apps

Jessica Apps moved half way around the world to begin a new life in Blaenavon with her mum and younger sister in November 2019. Now she has been described as a “superb role model” and is setting her sights on a teaching career.

A Traineeship Creative Engagement Programme with Sgiliau Cyf developed Jessica’s passion for photography and creative writing. She is now studying ‘A’ levels at Coleg Gwent with the ultimate goal of becoming a teacher.

Jessica said:

“Joining Sgiliau to do the Traineeship was the best decision I’ve made. After just five months, I found myself so happy and content with my new life and taking the next steps towards my dream job.”
