I am originally from Kelowna. I left when I was 13. I remember it being very cold and lonely there. I am now 34 years old. I have done a lot of construction work and I enjoy doing tattoo work. I have suffered from depression and anxiety throughout my life. The hardest part of my life is dealing with these diseases. My family and recovery make me happy. I would like to go back to school. I would like others to pray for my well being and health.
