When I was 2, my mam and I moved back to England to her hometown of South Shields, where she brought me up alone. Together we went through some tough s**t, but her strength and determination always inspired me to become more independent; she always told me I could do anything I wanted, and when other parents were saying no, she encouraged me to take my own risks and make my own decisions.
In life, you have to be willing to take risks and when you do, you are presented with endless possibilities. I didn't think that going around the world would necessarily change my life but it has certainly change my perspective, because you can’t truly understand the world around you if you have nothing to compare it to. And as we say up North, shy bairns get nowt!
Thank you mam for being my inspiration!
