When and how did you get involved with Cardiff Youth Service?
Got involved with North Ely Youth Club around COVID doing outreach. I was searching high and low for my calling until the wind called my name. I answered. As the leaves brushed across my face, a gentle whisper glided through my ears. "Join the Youth Service, join and don't look back."

Favourite thing about working for Cardiff Youth Services
Working with likeminded people to get the best out of young people for the benefit of young people.
Best memory working for Cardiff Youth Services
Air Soft during the summer program. It went off. One morning, we were in the trenches battling against the enemy in a very heated game. I looked up to a sea of bullets. No way out. In the corner of my eye, I saw a stealth operative from the opposing battalion making his way over to our flank. His muscles were unmistakable. Matthew Bryn Lewis. Youth Worker. Confidont. Friend. Not today. I seized my opportunity, completely disregarding my safety and the commands of my leading officer to negate the impact of this stealth mission. Quick shuffle to my left, using my experiences on Caerau Lane to my benefit to avoid capture and detection. He's in my sights. 1, 2, 3, fire. Clean shot. No way out for Matthew as he returned to the spawn point. I stand up proud, with the whole team chanting my name and singing songs in my honour.
