This post is off beat, I am a big fan of astrology and I am of a humanitarian sign, I get it most of you most probably don’t believe in signs and I respect it. The point of this is the way in which I came to creating Upliftment Information.
I have always been interested in volunteering and uplifting people through my skills and experiences, I currently work in the third sector (charity) and have experience both in central and local government departments. I have previous experience in international development despite studying a law degree (which I disliked after my second year, due to its cut throat nature). I grew up thinking I was a Capricorn, having to follow a straight path in life but it turns out I’m Aquarius as I was born on a cusp between the two but my parents are Taurus and Capricorn/Sagittarius.
So all the work and volunteering I have undertaken has involved helping people who are disadvantaged and uplifting them. Even as a retail worker I like to help people, off course there are days when I am fed up but who doesn’t feel like that. I work in a charity also with people suffering with mental health.
How does my sign affect the information I give, this site has been live for four years so far, and it was at a time in my life when I wanted to go down a different career path, but I wanted to give my skills and experience to projects, granted I’m a black guy so I’ll focus on my own people first but it doesn’t mean anyone else can access the information if you think its useful.
Finally, in my mid-30’s I am coming to peace with how I am and ignoring the need to try and be conformist or traditional, as it does not work for me.
I’m a dreamer, idealistic and do things in a unorthodox way, explain that without astrology, personality tests like Belbin and Myers Briggs Don’t come close.
I hope this site in the main has been of use so far.
