I have lived and worked amongst the most privileged and the most discriminated of our society, from the highs of property and prestige to the depths of hell battling substance abuse. I am evidence that when supported appropriately, people can change.
After many years of working on my health and wellbeing, I now understand the value of my journey as evidence that people can change. As a result of my studies have provided me with insight and awareness to confidentiality share my story. I display the resilience required to rise above all of the labels society had placed upon me. My journey is evidence that with access to the appropriate support long term change is possible.
I have taken my first steps on a journey to make Systemic Change within the Criminal Justice System. Building Social Capital to design a new framework, that I believe will bring Significant Social Impact and Value.
