Through the Time 2 Shine programme The Rank Foundation gets to meet amazing individuals who go on to make a real difference in the sector.

I know I have said this before, however I have recently been thinking over what my life has become since being a Time to Shine intern and I am really grateful for the opportunity you gave me.

Being a mature student, with no experience in the field of Criminal/Restorative justice I really do think I owe everything to the Time to Shine internship. I am now sat in an office doing a job which I once would have classed as my dream job. Yet these dreams seemed so unachieveable for me. Even last year when I felt I was at a low point tyring to get somewhere, you all gave me advice and pushed me in the right direction, even after my internship had finished, for this I am eternally greatful.

I honestly believe that I am where I am today because of the The Rank Foundation, doing a job I love and studied for is something special and I have you all to thank for that.

Thank you for being an amazing organisation and for giving others an opportunity to reach our dreams. I can say now I have, and to you all, I am grateful.

Thank you so much
One happy ex-intern
