Positive View

PT’s Story

Before I knew it, I was following in my brother’s footstep. I started stealing in primary school and having fights. I decided to finish with education. I didn’t attend secondary school or college

I live in Lambeth, London. At the age of five I didn’t know what was going on around me. It was when I started primary school, I started to see what London life was all about.

My older brother used to get arrested nearly four times a week. Mum kicked him out of the house because she felt he was a big influence on me. However, kicking him out only made our brotherhood grow stronger.

Before I knew it, I was following in my brother’s footsteps. I started stealing in primary school and having fights. I decided to finish with education. I didn’t attend secondary school or college.

I have been arrested for GBH and drugs. My brother is now in prison for a very long time. I don’t want my life to turn out like that.

I was thinking what to do when a friend told me about Positive View and since then my life has taken a brilliant turn. I first started with photography but after the course you realize they are willing to help us achieve our goals as long as we are willing to dedicate ourselves to achieving them.

Positive View has helped transform PT’s life. He always wanted to work outside, and he is now a paid trainee groundsman at his nearby professional football club.
