Sometimes, the universe is full of surprises, and life can shift for the better in ways we never thought possible. Yu Xin’s story, a 2022 graduate of the Bettr Work Training (BWT) Programme's Intake 03, is one such case in point.
Kicked out of home when she was just 16, Yu Xin found herself couchsurfing from place to place, eventually landing a rental room and working to support herself. After 2 years of navigating this rocky path, she discovered a landing place at Bettr in 2021. Recommended to her by a friend, the BWT Programme represented a timely window of opportunity which opened up the same year she dropped out of school.
All she thought when she signed up for the programme, was getting by with the stipend awarded. Little did she know that this was her first step to many moments of peace and joy, found family, and the stability that she craved.
