Only until I began to open up about my mental health, and call the University therapist; my whole world changed.
This vulnerability and action to seek help, was not weakness, but a means to understand the bitter past, gain clarity, and begin to create a sweeter picture of how I so wrongly, was living in my skin.
My healing led to Meditation, Self-Help, Positive Reaffirmations, Fitness, Diet-reforming, Energetics, and essentially Re-identifying.
This catalytic process has now led me to where I am today.
It has given me the courage to help steer others’ stories, from the dark depths of not loving yourself; and be that very mentor; to take you from this point… to discover your authenticity, love and understand yourself, to eventually be ready to call in and commit to your to-be soulmate.
The journey hadn’t ended there yet.
Despite some lingering hurt and pain bodies of the past. I was now empowered and equipped to take them head on.
Social anxiety and the “shy guy” was the first to go, when I decided to become a Butler in the Buff, serve drinks, and host party games at big events.
My self-doubt morphed into a mouse rather than the elephant it once was, when I got invited to feature on Prime-time TV, model and present for reputable brands, while going as far as meeting Love Island’s directors as a top 50 contestant for the show; all the while having the courage and integrity to show-up as myself.
My once anxiety disorder, then became the Empathy and Emotional Intelligence I could channel into becoming the best Student Life mentor, of 80 students.
My inability to pursue and manifest better, was silenced by my actions after graduating University with a First Class Business & Psychology Degree, even with offers from Warner Bros and large Consulting Firms in London, I still found the courage to mic-drop my way out of the UK, to find Bali.
