I Am Able

Friends of Children and Youth


“My father took drugs often and was physical abusive towards our mum. Mum mentioned he also had affairs outside. I witnessed these scenes growing up. I remember feeling very stressed whenever it happens. I was also struggling in my studies.

I joined Life Community when I was 12 years old. I had a caseworker and a volunteer mentor who journeyed alongside me, providing me with much support, counsel and guidance. I attended workshops that taught my character values, and weekly tuition classes at Life Community.

I slowly became more stable and confident. I believe my emotional wounds were also slowly healed as I became less triggered and stressed. During my PSLE, I manged to passed all my subjects! I was overjoyed. I used to fail most exams in the past, and I am glad I did much better than I expected.

Even if life is tough, I now know I can always choose better, positive life choices.”
