Please bear with me while I share with you some wonderful wonderful news.
One of our very traumatised young men has been accepted to catering college. To say his journey has been tough is simply not enough. He has faced more in his 17 years than you could imagine.
To let you know that at the age of 5 he was safer on the streets than in his family MAY give you an idea of the horrors he has endured. He spent 10 years living by his wits and surviving on fear, until he came to us almost three years ago.
You don’t live his life without wearing and showing both emotional and physical scars.
His time with us has been filled with anger, fear, joy and eventually love. I love this boy with my heart and he now allows himself to be loved.
Today he starts at college where he WILL become a chef – his life’s dream. He IS already amazing and he will show the world that you can survive and achieve if people believe in you.
Go live your dream young man – we are believers!!!!
