At school I was being bullied and kept getting into fights. I’d also had some run-ins with the police and was told I’d end up locked up if things didn’t change.
At first I couldn’t talk about what had been going on at home. I didn’t know how to explain how I felt. But after a while I started to open up a bit about what had happened to me. That was a year ago.
I’ve learned some ways to stop myself from getting into fights when I get angry or frustrated. I’m getting on better with my mum too.
Things have changed a lot and I’m feeling positive about the future.
The Supported Youth Program is funded by the Department for Education, Children and Young People.
