Having grown up without a dad, experiencing an unhealthy relationship with my mum to one that is now non-existent, moving out of home when I was 16, spending years lost, angry and scared I know all too well what it feels like to feel misunderstood, lonely & worthless.

There is a quote that says "You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it." I now know that I went through everything in my past because I am supposed to use what I have learnt and share my experiences and story to help the Youth of today understand that they are not alone in their struggles and that there are people out there who will listen to them when they speak.

I am completing the Ride For Youth in March 2019 as something small I can do right now to help give back and as such will be cycling the 700km from Albany to Perth in 4.5 days to raise awareness for youth mental health and suicide prevention.

Youth Focus are an incredible organization and I am lucky enough to be able to join and support them and the kids they help by completing the ride. Any and all donation sizes are extremely appreciated. Not just by me, but the youth of today.

Thank you for your donation!!

Wish me luck!
