My Prison Visit Experience




Hello loves,

so recently I realised that slowly I've lost the true meaning of blogging. A blog is not supposed to be a website, it's supposed to tell people your story so that they can follow it and enjoy it with you so that's what I'm doing to do. The aim is to update my blog as much as possible even if it's just an entry to update you about what I did that day. Moving on to what this post is really about...
The other day I got approached by a company with an interpreter job! Crazy right? I didn't even apply! I took it of course and at first I found it really scary. I hadn't really signed a non-disclosure agreement before and seeing all the paperwork with small print was a little scary so I got confirmation from my uncle who helped me out. 
My first task was in a prison! Amazing right!! I have always wanted to go inside a prison and to see what it is like without you know actually committing a crime myself. The client needed me to translate what a prisoner was saying and that's all I can disclose about it. However, I can tell you how it was on the inside! It was actually just like I imagined, if not a little scarier actually. I went to the HMP Elmley on the Isle of Sheppey. The security within the prison was crazy and there were so many gated doors! I'm pretty sure we walked through 15 doors at least to get to where I needed to. 

On my arrival I had to sign myself in the staff bit and I had to hand in almost everything - phone, valid trains tickets, deodorants, USB etc. and I gave them my passport.Then I waited for a prison officer to take me through all those doors - he had to open every door with a lock and unlock it! 
While in there I saw a few prisoners in there on the passing. 
It was a very interesting experience and I am so glad that I got the experience. Definitely something I'd like to talk about in an interview if relevant. 

I'm gonna have some dinner while watching an episode of 13 reasons why and then head to bed.

Till tomorrow! :) 

Good night lovelies xo
