I founded the Trust back in November 2012 alongside Mr Dean. My reasons for founding the Trust were due to personal experience of bullying and depression. Bullying and depression affects so many people, and it can also have a huge impact on the lives of your friends and families and not just your own. Having suffered bullying for a short while back in my first year of high school, I always had a vision of setting something up that could help people suffering with these problems. At the end of the last year, I shared my vision with a few people in my community and 5 months on my vision is becoming true due to the hard work of myself and those around me, who I cannot thank enough for their work. We are now helping young people who suffer from bullying and depression. I am delighted by how far we have come and I will endeavour to make sure we help as many people as we can in the future.
I am currently looking to help deliver the services that help form the Trust. Alongside the mentoring, I am looking to develop the overall program that we offer. This includes email and counselling mentoring.
In 2014, I decided to step down as CEO for Talk Easy, primarily for the reason I wanted to move on and face a bigger challenge. I would like to give everyone at Talk Easy massive thank you for all their hard work and I could not have done it without them. I have now passed on my role as CEO to Dom Graham who will now lead the Trust to new and exciting things.
