Hi, my name is Paige!

PajoraPajora Member Posts: 1 Listener
I'm 20 years old and I'm entering the 'real' adult world sooner than I expected... I've just gone on temporary leave from university due to my physical and mental health. I have chronic pain and fatigue, along with depression, anxiety and ADHD.

I've never worked before so I'm here to try to start. All this financial stuff is really intimidating to me now that I might not get my student loan :/

I love videogames and TV series, and I also speak Spanish. If you don't mind subtitles, Money Heist is an amazing Spanish show! One of the best I've ever seen, in any language.

I'm excited to see where this brings me :)

    Hello @Pajora and welcome to the community, how are you? 

    I hope you are able to manage your mental health and are receiving any support you need for it. 

    Financial stuff can be complicated, but with time I'm sure you'll grow to understand it.  What sort of work are you looking for? 

    I'm also a big fan of video games, are you playing anything at the moment?
