This program has taught me that I don’t have to do the bad things I was shown in life. I CAN do better. I CAN make it. I CAN be successful. I CAN do the better things I wanna do in life.
Throughout this time, I distracted myself with sports, drugs and alcohol. I wanted to erase this pain I felt of not belonging anywhere. My brother and I felt like outcasts because we didn’t have a sense of belonging.
I was quite hesitant to trust and believe what they had to say about the outcomes, but day by day I grew to trust and see that Live for More can help change a person.
I had no sense of drive or motivation, so I was heavy on drugs and alcohol and in trouble with the law.
When I’m out surfing, I feel relaxed and stable. Surfing calms my mind and is refreshing for me because being in the water makes me feel at peace.
Before this course, drugs were at the top of my list and my #1 priority. I was dark, lost, hood bound and lazy. I felt like I was a nobody and I was angry at everyone. I was hopeless.
