Betina Ebondo Calho, aged 24, is a former resident of YMCA South Ealing.
“I lived at the YMCA hostel in South Ealing for three years while I got back on my feet. I’ve now moved and living in private rented accommodation.”
Betina received marketing training and a certificate in her native France, and would like to put that to good use in a new job. “I’m bi-lingual in English and French, so a job at Heathrow Academy would be ideal for me.”

Betina gave a great speech at the Get on Track awards ceremony, and told the audience about how much she had enjoyed the project, how it had helped to build up her confidence in looking for work and what she had achieved. She was presented her certificate by former Hillingdon Mayor, Councillor Carol Melvin.
