As a teenager I had a lot of undiagnosed mental health problems, and my parents just couldn’t cope with me anymore, so I ended up losing my home.
Some nights I’d have to sleep on the streets and I spent a few nights at a bus shelter. It was awful.
I’m very passionate about the issue, not only because I’ve experienced it myself, but because I’ve been working with homeless people. I’ve seen why they’ve become homeless, and nobody deserves that.
I’ve created a film with Fixers to break down the prejudices about homelessness.
