I’m Lauryn. I’m a daughter, a sister, a full-time student and a trainee at Ability Business Group.

I’m come from a close-knit family, who I love spending time with, if you ask me what makes me smile – it’s definitely my family. I’m a daddy’s girl, but my mum is my hero, I admire her. I watch how she conquers her days with so much grace and grit, it gives me so much inspiration.

In my spare time, when I’m not in front of my laptop with my headphones in getting into ‘the zone’, you can find me out shopping, eating out or watching movies with my friends but most of the time, I’m working, especially now during the lockdown period.

I don’t mind as much though because I really take pride in my work ethic. I want to give high quality results, so I study hard. I believe strongly in working to a high standard and this is why I enjoy working with Ability. I believe in what they stand for and I have personally witnessed the value they add. My work with Ability challenges to be the best version of myself and I am given an opportunity to work autonomously but also, I feel very much, a part of the team.

I'm encouraged and supported to try new things and to think outside of the box which helps me to improve. I am part of a small team in a growing company and what is great is, as they grow, I grow.

Currently, I am studying Business, Psychology & Sociology, but I hope to focus more on Law when I go to university. I have big dreams which are nurtured by my family and the Ability team are also big supporters and invest in my development.

As a teenager, I like to have fun, but I also understand that not everything we do is about having fun. Sometimes it can be tough to stay dedicated to my studies, but one of my favourite quotes by Dolly Parton is “If you want Rainbows, you gotta put up with the rain”.

On my journey to create the career of my dreams, there might be rainy days, but I intend to work hard and stay focused on my studies because I know my future is my rainbow and I have people supporting and investing in my growth. I am one of the fortunate ones and I try not to take it for granted.
