Mo 24 – Youth Worker
My name is Mo. I was born in Egypt then I moved to Australia when I was nine. With six siblings at home, school was always going to be challenging. But once I did finish my HSC, I went on to study psychology and physics at Uni.
Having access to education and training meant so much. Just little things like my CV and prepping me for job interviews made a huge difference. I went on to become a casual youth worker and peer leader with the city of Yarra in Melbourne.
But given I was helping to support others, it was ironic when I got a mental health plan and I needed support myself.
For a long time I resisted identifying or even acknowledging that I had a mental illness or disability.
Having a job definitely helped me, as it was a way to kind of validate to myself that I’m actually able to do these things despite what I’m facing, what I’m dealing with.
I didn’t feel held back, in fact my innate belief was that I could achieve anything.
