I was raised in Clarkson, Mississauga from the age of 2, but when I was 15 years old my parents bought a house up north in Flesherton, Ontario were the population was only 300. This has caused cultural shock to me and my brothers. I ended up running away as I couldnt handle the small community they choose to live in.
Upon running away I lived on the streets in many cities for almost seven years; drinking and drugging to adjust to the way of living and I felt lost in my own skin and thinking there wasnt anyone out there that could help me.
One day I had enough and called the Withdrawal Management Center (detox) in Brampton, Ontario to see if I could get help, as I really wanted it this time.
While in detox I asked them to help me get clean and sober so I could live in my own skin. I was accepted to a treatment center in Orillia, Ontario and spent three and a half months there learning how to live in the community. I really enjoyed the learning process that not only kept me sober and clean but also allowed me to return to school to get my Grade 12 diploma. I now have a diploma in Drug and Alcohol counselling, one as a Social Service worker andI am currently attending Lakehead University in Orillia working towards my bachelor of social work degree.
Through many struggles today I am just over 5 years clean and sober. I can say that this road was the hardest road I have ever been on until I learned to stop fighting it and learned to see the gifts of sobriety that I have been blessed with.
Today I have many successes and awards through school and the community, e.g. Lieutenant Governors Community Volunteer Awards for Students, I been nominated for the "Order of Orillia Award, and I was the first student at Georgian College & Lakehead Universityshistory to ever established a financial award in my own name while still in studies.
Today my goal is to give back to the community and help someone that cant help themselves. This is why I wrote this book, hoping to reach out to those that need it. I feel sharing my struggles and hopes can help another person from going down the wrong road as I have.
Included are 12 testimonials from people who know me and tell it as it was; from a sergeant of the Halton Regional Police station, a jail guard, my former probation officer, counsellors, both parents, son, and a few ex-girlfriends etc...
My book is presently in over 25,000 different stores through the online distribution centers, e.g Barnes & Noble, Amazon, etc I have signed a three month consignment contract at Chapters/ Indigo at Yorkdale Mall, Toronto, Ontario. Georgian College has allowed my book to be sold through their book store and Lakehead University is also helping with the promotion of my book as I am contributing five dollars per book for the next three years to establish a financial award in my own name while still in studies.
Also available for motivational speaking.
