Chris – Project Officer, Making The Leap

May 18, 2016

I have lived in Mitcham in South London pretty much my whole life. While I was born and raised in the UK, both my parents were raised in Ghana which influenced a lot of my upbringing.

I am a huge fan of literature and love to read in my spare time. I also have a passion for writing as a hobby, regularly finding time to come up with and explore new ideas for books. It is a future ambition of mine to one day publish a book of my own.

 Kenny – YBM project officer, Hackney CVS

I started off as a young man whose parents were very protective of and never let me interact with the outside world. Going to school was for me the only opportunity to come into contact with other individuals but my lack of interaction with people led me to withdraw into myself. Unable to understand how to relate with others, I was always on the defensive, which brought me into challenging situations. As a result, my school decided to assign me to a mentor – Nick, with whom I met every week to talk about my life inside and outside of school.
