“I’m a small-town farm boy; adopted at a young age and raised in a very religious family. Growing up, I did what I could to fit in but honestly despite all my best efforts I still stuck out like a sore thumb. So after moving out of my parents’ house at 16, falling into drugs, and subsequently failing to complete high school, I decided to move to Vancouver to pursue a dancing and modelling career. My dreams ended up taking a backseat after I started making a lot of questionable life decisions which ultimately landed me at rock bottom. I realized I had been wasting my potential and quite frankly I was fucking over it. I decided it was time to get my life back on track, so I put down the drugs, rolled up my sleeves, and got to work. That was when I got involved with Transitions. I owe a lot of the progress that I’ve made, to Alvaro and the program. Due to the constant support and guidance I’ve received from Transitions, I learned skills that have helped me completely transform my life. I can finally say I’m back on track and able to once again pursue the dreams I thought had died a long time ago. I’m in that place because of Transitions and I’m eternally grateful for that”. Participant, HIM Transitions.
