My name is Kirsty, I am 21 from the North East and have just started my idea 'kirsty' s girlie gifts' where I sell cosmetic gift sets, perfumes, jewellery and personalised gifts. I have previously worked in call centres etc but have discovered my passion of being able to provide for myself and run something that could become successful. I have recently lost my job due to coronavirus and have no idea how I am going to find any other in these circumstances but am determined to make a success of myself and not turn to the job centre as I know they can be very helpful but will encourage me to pursue a 'normal' career and not rely to heavily on making a business for myself. I don't have a very big family and am unable to ask them for help as they are also struggling in these sad times. I would appreciate help from anybody and I promise if you ever place an order with me I will give you great discount! With any money I make I would love to open a new-style youth centre in my local area for the younger generation like myself when I didn't have anything like that in my school years to help children realise their full potential and help make entrepreneurs all over the North East with help and support, so hopefully you will see hope in this and do the same for me so that I can give back one day to the society that raised me.
