Fatma, 19, started attending the Street League Dance Fit Social having never worked or applied for a job before, looking for some help to find a job in retail. Fatma described Street League Dance Fit as being ‘like work, but fun!’ and found the interview skills assistance really useful, particularly the mock interviews, which Barclays staff carried out. 

After working hard on her applications, Fatma passed a two-stage interview process and was successful in gaining a Retail Assistant position at TK Maxx. Fatma enjoyed partaking in the dance fitness sessions and took a central leadership role in the community event, having designed the promotional materials and organizing the other participants on the day. She was an excellent peer mentor for the Academy participants and gained confidence through this role.
