I have learnt to hold my brother's accountable for their actions. What I look forward to being a positive role model and leader for others to follow, and I look forward to seeing more of Gods plan and purpose revealed over my life.

If the Steps are Forward, I'm Happy
"I have learnt that recovery is a step by step process. Just as long as the steps are forward, It doesn’t matter how big they are. I have learnt that to become a good leader first you must become a good follower. I’ve learnt not to dwell in the struggle but you keep going I've learnt how to re-integrate back into society."
