Being the oldest of eight children wasn't always easy. It required me to find work in the farming community where I grew up to assist in supporting my family. Working on the farms was something I enjoyed. But I needed more work than farming could provide. So by the age of 17, I spent many hours working as a bus driver.
Driving people around exposed me to some negative influences that began my downward spiral into a life of addiction and despair. Life began to feel hopeless.
