“I had never even tried videomaking until I began the training. I was taught what type of videos are most likely to make an impact and was practically shown how to create them. Technology and I usually go in different directions, but Veronica built my confidence and my belief so that I could do it, supporting me step by step. She was also supportive in reviewing the video and offering practical feedback.– Dr Abdoulie Sanneh, Community Organiser, West Itchen Community Trust
