My further experience with LGFB

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog and today’s blog will be featuring my personal experience that I currently volunteer for Look Good Feel Better along with experience on how I recognise a few people that came into the workshop and my personal emotions that I went through as well from the experience of volunteering for amazing organisation, so grab a snack ?or drink ? and get comfortable ? because this blog post is going to be interesting for you to read ?.

During my voluntary experience with LGFB, I’ve seen so many ladies come and go and I don’t usually come across anyone that I know nor have been familiar with until one day, I’d came across one person that I recognised them by face, but not by their name and when I met one of the ladies, I immediately recognised her for the first time in years and after seeing her go through cancer herself, I wanted to leave the room and stay focused on bringing on other ladies who are having a hard time finding a place to park and we are currently running late to the session and you’re probably wondering who is it that you manage to recognise from the group on that day.

The person who came into the workshop that I managed to recognise was in fact an old work colleague of mine where I used to work in a primary school from 7 to 8 years ago and she immediately recognised me from the workshop that I was volunteering with. As we were getting on with the workshop we all seem to work well though and helped everybody out there who needed the help most and we would generally have a conversation though on what we been up to and I told exactly what I was told her everything what been up to and she told me the same thing and my last words I said to her was to stay strong and keep fighting no matter how long it takes and what it takes you still going to remain strong and fight through this.

When I got home from the session that I’ve met an old work colleague of mine I told my mum exactly what happened and I immediately burst into tears and I felt really bad and upset because of what she was currently going through cancer right there and then ?. From that point on, I realised that I needed to remain mentally strong for anyone else who is currently going through cancer and battling through the disease as well. Another time of events that happened to me when I met someone who is also been diagnosed with cancer was an old teaching assistant who used to work at a secondary school and I had a good bond with her when I was a teenager and yes the emotions were repeated again after not only seeing her for a while but also seeing her battle through cancer as well.

However on my second attempt on seeing someone who I know for years I remained strong minded, motivated and kept focusing ahead on the task at hand and amazingly it paid off along with the fact I get to show them that are shown in front of the ladies that they can purchase from certain websites and telling them that 10% of the proceeds go towards Look Good Feel Better along with me explaining to them that the brushes are supersoft the cruelty free and the perfect for anybody who’s got super sensitive skin while the going through treatment or for anybody in general has sensitive skin. After I finished of the session I told my mum exactly what happened that’s an old teaching assistant of mine came to the workshop and I told her everything what happened and again the same reaction was I broke down in tears and my mum reminded me not to get too attached to them and I told her I wasn’t getting attached to them and it was in fact a state of shock after seeing one of the nicest teaching assistants who has helped me with my school work in years was then coming into the workshop and the roles have been reversed.

Despite my experience on my feelings and seeing people who I know in general and going on an emotional rollercoaster everything turned out for the better as I grew as a person and feeling motivated but physically and emotionally in order for me to get myself forward in life ? along with the fact that this experience altogether can possibly inspire anybody else who is going to the exact same feeling when they also know somebody who has been diagnosed with cancer/tumour and yes it can be hard at first but once you take a deep breath and stay mentally strong for yourself and for other people who are around you you will do absolutely amazingly with the process and a condolence to you and for anyone who recently lost a loved one due to cancer/tumour ?.

My voluntary experience with LGFB

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog, today’s blog is going to be different from the the other blogs that I did on my life with autism and will be explaining on my experience on volunteering with Look Good Feel Better (LGFB), how I got involved with volunteering in the first place and what I gained as an volunteer for a worthy cause as well as on how to apply as an volunteer for LGFB.

But before I got to explain everything I want to give a shoutout to my brother Arvin for my inspiration to volunteer with LGFB and check his blog out, you can go onto and on his blog, you will find out on how he managed to overcome his diagnose of the brain tumours along with his weight loss and the challenges.

I started volunteering at a grateful cause that helped women be themselves again and teach them new skills that will help them be beautiful as well as teaching me to appreciate life and achieve gratefulness on what I can achieve through gratitude. You’re probably wondering on how I started volunteering with LGFB and what inspired to go for it in the first place?

It started back in March till May 2016 when I went to Ellisons and I studied to do beginners guide to professional make up and special occasional make up in order to pursue my career as a make up artist. As days turned into weeks and weeks turned into months, I realised that my skills as a make up artist are getting me no where at this point.

Until one day, I went online and researched on Look Good Feel Better, I went on the actual website about the charitable organisation and I was amazed with their work, however I wasn’t sure if the qualifications that I had meet up to their criteria of the qualifications and the amount of experience, so I gave them a call and asked them if it was alright and they said fine and the gentleman even gave me the instructions over on the phone on how to apply as a volunteer for LGFB.

The next couple of days later, I got an email from LGFB informing me on when and where I need to go for my LGFB session to observe the workshop provided from the along with the directions on how to get there including which bus or buses to take in order to get to the hospital or cancer centre depending on the location.

I arrived at the Arden centre Coventry on mid-October feeling nervous as if I had butterflies in my stomach and as soon as I got there, I totally forgot the name of the room that I needed to get there, luckily the receptionist knows where to go for the workshop and I was introduced to a wonderful team and a fabulous team leader named Anita for look good feel better and she explained to me on how the workshop works along with the things that I needed to bring with me in order to fill in for the DBS before working with the ladies.

But before I even I did all that, I had to go to the volunteer office and take the things that I needed in order to do the paperwork in the office based on filling in the DBS form that must be done and sent to the main authority office in order to gain a voluntary badge that you wear around your neck, it usually takes days or weeks depending on the location and what was filled in the form. Once that’s completed, you need to take your DBS form with you back to voluntary office and they will inform you what to do next in order to gain your volunteer badge.

During the form filling, you will be asked if you have any medical conditions or any personal information that needs to be answered and you MUST be 100% without a doubt be honest with it.

Ever since I volunteered for look good feel better, I enjoyed helping other women who have been affected with cancer teaching and helping them out with the basics on using the skincare and cosmetics along with making beverages, soaking up the cotton pads, putting the make up on the ladies and clearing up after the workshop session has done. I also have to give my opinion on how the workshop went.

After doing the voluntary workshop, I felt really grateful on the experience on helping others, in which gave me a sense of gratitude, appreciation, passionate and having the ability to empower others along with working in a team as well. If you want to find out further information about look good feel better, want to volunteer with them or even fundraise for them, head over to and apply to volunteer or fundraise for a great worthy cause. ????
