Here at Green Labyrinth we are always so amazed and proud of the things our learners do outside of their academic achievements. One of these students is our very own budding entrepreneur Grace, she has faced many challenges over the past few years and we have been so happy to have helped her through some of them but she has also found another way to help… by setting up her own Crochet Business, Crochetbyculliford!
We asked her if she could tell us a bit more about her journey and this is what she said:
“My name is Grace, I am 19 years of age and I suffer from anxiety, depression and borderline body dysmorphia. I started Green Labyrinth when I was 18 after not leaving the house very often for 3 years or so, it was definitely a barrier I wanted to break and the staff at Green Labyrinth helped me with that. Not only did they help me boost my confidence, they also helped me put a start to my own little crochet business which had given me independence and some income.
I picked up crochet when I was around the age of 16 from various YouTube videos and found it very therapeutic and haven’t stopped since, I have received an overwhelming amount of support from friends, family and everyone at Green Labyrinth.
I also have set up a Facebook and Instagram page dedicated to my crochet creations and even a Tiktok, I am extremely grateful and optimistic to what lies ahead in my future.”
