Grace is a service user at one of our centres for people experiencing homelessness. She overcame her fears and took a Leap of Faith by stepping out of her comfort zone and on to the catwalk.

I feel I can go on and do so much now."

"Taking part in the fashion show in Inverness has given me more confidence in myself and confidence I never had before.

"We were given £20 to create an outfit and then model it on the catwalk. I was really nervous in the build-up to the show because I’d never done anything like it before in my life. But everyone at The Salvation Army was so helpful and put me at ease, just like they always do.

"All the girls travelled up together to Inverness on the morning of the show and then hair and beauty students from the local college came down to the venue and did our hair and make-up. I felt like a VIP. 

"I'm so proud of myself for having the courage to go up on that stage. I feel I can go on and do so much now.

"I’m now hoping to get a place at South Lanarkshire College where I have applied to study British Sign Language."
