Hey, I’m new here…

Hello everyone, I’m Derek. I’ve just started working with the Canaan Project as a Student Youth Worker. Here’s a little about me… I’ve come all the way over to London from the small place of Northern Ireland, and even before that America. So basically, I was born in America and lived there for 15 years until my family moved to Nothern Ireland which has been my home for the last 5 and a bit years. I was doing Youth Work in the church I attended back in Northern Ireland for about two out of three years I was there, and had a great time doing it. So much so anyway, that I decided to study it in university. Now I am going to the University of East London to study and am doing a placement here with the Canaan Project. It’s awesome being able to work in this organisation and I am definitely looking forward to being a part of all that’s going on here and can’t wait to just ‘get stuck in’ and involved!
