My name’s Jasmine and I’m a Youth Mentor.
I guess I started volunteering because I didn’t want anyone to go through what I did. When I was sixteen, I fell for the wrong guy. He got me into all sorts of trouble; he even got me to deliver for him.
I was heading down a bad path, but I didn’t think about it until… well, I don’t really want to talk about it. That was when I spoke with Andrez, one of the workers at the youth centre, and she helped me remove myself from that lifestyle.
I’ve been trying to build a better life for my little girl. She’s one now, and such a cutey! Andrez’s got me a job as a Youth Mentor, but she’s training me to be a Youth Worker! I like helping people, and I can see a lot of similarities between myself and Aaliyah.
