Naeema’s confidence grows through her DofE

Before starting her DofE, 15-year old Naeema was shy and timid and usually didn’t talk to other students that weren’t in her school year. Doing her DofE has allowed Naeema to grow in confidence and make friends outside of her classes. For her Volunteering section, she is helping out the community by making blankets out of crisp packets that have been mailed to her for homeless people; helping to save lives.
