I've been through some challenges in my life. After being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at aged 15, I started using marijuana and other substances as a way to cope. Since then, I’ve struggled with managing my physical health alongside addiction, and there’s been times when I’ve lost hope.
Still, in the last 6 months my whole outlook has changed. I came to the realisation that I don't want to struggle for the rest of my life. I had to give up and stop using substances, keep myself clean, and put the effort into my health. I care for the first time about my heath, and that comes before anything now. I’m so committed to making positive changes in my life, and I feel that getting back into work is the next big step for me.
I love chatting to people and building genuine connections with them, and I’d love to find a job that would allow me to do this. I'm looking forward to the support I'll get on this journey and, with the right guidance and a little bit of help, I know I can achieve my employment goals and keep moving forward in a positive direction.
