“You have to build your confidence up. Now I can, before I couldn’t. Being married helped me build my confidence.

You have to work as hard as you can at school even though it can be very boring. But it’s worth it in the end.

You don’t want to be in this world not to do anything. I wasn’t sure in high school what I wanted to do. I didn’t know where I wanted to be. I don’t’ think I had great enthusiasm for anything in my teens and I’m still not sure. But now I’m in my 30’s I’m starting to think hard to work towards my goals. If I want to have kids and settle down, I need to have a stable life. I want to get my own van and buy my first house. It’s better for the future.

If you have the strength to work, do it. It is awesome, good for your mind. Even if it is something small, do it. It gives you an active life. It doesn’t have to be physical.

I’ve done a lot of things I’ve learnt from.

Reach for your dreams. Don’t be shy. Try to complete your goals.”
