I am passionate about

Actions

Through giving my life experience in different forums i have been able to create awareness about the importance of families to children. The public has been ignorant about the fate of children IN CARE and AFTER CARE and every time i have a chance to attend these forums , no one leaves the place with the same mentality as they had. At one point i felt like giving up and i turned suicidal. Thousands of youths are going through the same globally and by giving motivational speech to youths and those who are are still mentally crippled by their painful experiences , they are motivated to live once more.
