Why you should attend finding your Voice
It was December 1995; It was a very exciting time of my young life because I as getting ready to start primary school the following week. One evening, I was watching television with my cousins who were looking after us because parents were out as were on many occasions, we were watching a movie when we heard raised voices which i soon recognised, it was my parents, I took no notice at all but all the adults in the room went to see what was going on after a few minutes I heard mum scream so I ran down to the kitchen to see what was going on, I was greeted by blood on the floor, I could see a knife had been used and my heart stopped at which point my young brother came down to tell me what was going on in the movie we were watching and I just knew he could see what I had just seen so I quickly grabbed him by his arm and went back to the room to watch the movie. From that moment on I went into a world of my own which I was live in for the majority of my life, that night I lost my voice.
The first two years of school were terrible, I was bullied on daily basis, the world was a lonely place to be. I could not see what was written on the board but I couldn’t speak up because the teachers who were supposed to teach me had made up their minds that I was a lost cause. In 2009 at the age of 18 I was diagnosed with Nystagmus (an Involuntary movement of the eye) This was a relief because it was then I realised that I could take control of my life. I have spent the majority of my 20s soul searching and finding my voice in the world that took away my Voice, I will be sharing my journey from being bullied, isolated and failing my high school to making a decision to Change my life. Kim Harvey a mind-set coach will present the second part of the afternoon and she will give you some tools that will help you find you true voice,
