I think it's easier if you focus your mind in the right places.

As I got into secondary school people around me started getting involved with carrying knives.

Recently, someone I knew got stabbed near my area and he died.

It hit the community really bad but it was like a wake-up call. People wanted things to change.

For me, prevention is cure. And that’s why I never felt the need to carry a knife.

I think it’s easier if you focus your mind in the right places, so I concentrate on my goals for the future.

After college I want to carry on with a creative career, and work in the fashion industry as a make-up artist.

My sister helps me stay on the right path.
