I joined a gang when I was 18. Life became meaningless when my then-girlfriend broke up with me during a time of financial difficulty in my family. I got addicted to online gaming, inflicted self-harm and became suicidal. I also missed school for two years. I was then referred to a New Life social worker for counselling. He encouraged me and brought me out of my hopelessness. Today I’m pursuing my studies in Community Care & Social Services at the Institute of Technical Education (ITE). I now aspire to help youths who were like me before.
