Going to Dunlea Centre was like planting the seed of a better future.

I started thinking about making better decisions. Obviously, I didn’t make every perfect decision. I was just a young teenager. But a lot of things resonated with me later on down the years, and it started to make more and more sense as time went on.

It just took me a few more years to focus in on that and work out what was important.
