    "Funnily enough, I actually did accounting in the past! I was introduced to the social service sector through volunteering and started off by helping animals. I then took a degree in Social Work, after which I pursued my interest in counselling and supporting the community."

    “Working at Transition Plus has been a most rewarding experience. I work with a happy-go-lucky and fun-loving team, so even bad days are good days, because we work together to resolve any problems that come our way."

    "I joined Transition Plus in 2018 as I wanted to step out of my comfort zone, while still applying the strengths and skills that I have. Although I'm a Social Worker, I go beyond doing clinical work and wear many hats! I also change lightbulbs, fix fridges... Every day brings a new surprise!”

    “Though life may have been unfair for the tenants, their resilience never fails to inspire me. At the end of the day, all they want is a place they can call home – something which most of us take for granted!"
