By 2009 both my parents had died and I was sharing a job with my brother, selling
things at the bus station and sleeping there. In the morning he came and relieved me
and I went home to rest. Then it was his turn to sell before I came back in the evening
to spend the night there. I wasn't scared. People knew I was deaf and looked out for
me and woke me up if they needed anything. When we stopped working there, I
applied for a job at Neema Crafts, but I had to wait a number of months before I was
accepted. I had learnt some tailoring before but the teacher didn’t help me much so I
left the course before I had completed it. When I heard back from Neema, I came and
was immediately put on a tailoring course, which was brilliant. I could finally do
something and felt wanted by people here...
