Fiona’s story, in her own words

Fiona works at her new computer.

Published: April 17, 2024

My name is Hung Fung but I like to be called Fiona. I want to thank you Pathways for the awesome gift of a new laptop I received. They make me feel that I am not alone in my struggles with depression and anxiety.

I am enabled to visit and have quality time with my children and do my shopping. Because of these supports I feel less depressed and fearful.

Emile is my Pathways support worker. I also have Mele who is my Housing Navigator from Emerge Aotearoa. They work as a team to support me and I am grateful. I have worked hard to know how to use my new computer.

I finally achieved the General English Level 3 Certificate in a class environment. It has taken me two years to complete the course.

Since I have a computer, I have enrolled in a Level 2 Computing course through the Open Polytechnic of New Zealand. Emile and a few other people support me with their prayers.

I feel that I am getting better step by step.
