I was referred to Bright Star after getting in lots of trouble at school and in my care home. I had a lot of aggression which I couldn't control.
Boxing has taught me respect. I've learnt if I react on aggression in the ring and not control my anger I get hurt and this is the same in life.
I'm still learning, but I am able to deal with situations in life better and feel part of the Bright Star family which is important to me coming from a care home.
I'm now helping coach other boxers who struggle with their anger like I was.
