Be ambitious: Neema’s story

We are ambitious in all aspects of our work, supporting people to see beyond their homelessness and realise their aspirations.

Like many of the young people we work with, Neema became homeless due to her relationship breaking down with her mother.  She came to the Fitze Millennium Centre 2 years ago and with the team’s support she has overcome many personal hurdles, built up her confidence and can see a future for herself in the creative industries and fashion.

After being discovered a year ago, Neema was supported to successfully register with an agency as a model has worked for ASOS, Alexander McQueen and at London Fashion Week, where she performed catwalk modelling for Melissa Shoes and Vivienne Westwood. “The team have assisted me in my modelling career and I’ve had good support from them’ she says.

Neema hopes to pursue a career in fashion design and modelling and to live independently.    The team have encouraged me and helped me to achieve my ambitions.  It’s felt good to be productive and move forwards.’
