I am 22 years old. I am originally from Penticton. I moved East with my dad until he passed away. I have been in and out of jail. Came back to see my mom. I then moved here with girlfriend. I was kicked out for acting a fool. Slept in a tent for 4 months. I then moved to Vernon from Penticton. I then fought with girlfriend again and got kicked out and ended up coming to the Howard House. I have done a few different jobs including mill work, production line, snow removal. I think the things that contributed most to my difficulties was not having a mom and my dad passing away, no sister, always moving and alcohol. There is not a lot that makes me happy, I don't have a lot of confidence. I have just a small group of friends and I am doing some courses for work. I would like to get back on my feet and get a good job and then a place of my own. I would like others to pray that I would be able to make more good friends and make my friends great.
