What makes you passionate about this space?

Growing up around people from different walks of life and backgrounds I always took interest in their stories. I found them fascinating and continued to surround myself with different characters and wondered how their minds worked, knowing it would help shape my outlook on life and better my perspective on all things people.

Opening up and sharing my story helped my mental health noticeably when I most needed it. That is a huge part as to why I’m so interested in helping others going through similar lifestyle issues, there are many lessons I’ve learnt on my journey that I’m sure can benefit others going through hard times without proper guidance.
