Full of life

5 YEARS OLD

I grew as an energetic, lively, confident young boy.

The sexual abuse

8 YEARS OLD

The abuse began. He managed to groom me very
successfully. He made me believe that what I was doing for him was special, and the more I did it, the more special I would become.

1993
1995
The abuse ended

10 YEARS OLD

I don’t remember realising that things had changed. I just continued with my life. I didn’t feel hurt. I didn’t feel in any danger.

1997
Life continued

12 YEARS OLD

I was doing well in school. I had a strong circle of friends. I was outspoken in class, and considered bold and forthcoming. I was involved in all sports, captaining many teams. There was no way of telling what I had been experienced. It was like I had buried it deep somewhere. 

1997
2002
Finished school

16 YEARS OLD

I began growing into a young man. I was feisty, strong minded and strong willed. I knew what I wanted and nobody could tell me otherwise.

Engineering career

18 YEARS OLD

I finished college and was awarded an advanced modern apprenticeship with an aerospace company. There I learnt how to design aircraft structure. I flourished, climbing the corporate ladder very quickly. I felt like I could achieve anything I set my mind to.

The fighting strategy

25 YEARS OLD

I enjoyed my 20’s. I was out partying every weekend, hanging out with friends and my career was going well taking me all around the world working as a design engineer. Everything was in my favour. But then suddenly something changed. When I turned 25 the memories of my abuse began to return.

2012-2014
2015-2017
Speaking out for the first time

27 YEARS OLD

I spent the next 2 years pushing these memories away. But it wasn’t working. They would disappear for a little while, but then return back stronger. It was like they were beating me down. This is when I knew I needed to do something about it. So I spoke out to a close friend for the first time.
2015-2017
2017
The growing confidence

32 YEARS OLD

I spent the next 5 years speaking to one more person at a time. I could feel myself growing in confidence with each time I spoke. It led me to become curious about how others were coping. I joined chat rooms online to find out. This is when I became aware of the intense
suffering people were going through, and that this was a
worldwide problem.

The pursuit of my abuser

33 YEARS OLD

I started to wonder where the man that did this to me was. Was he still doing this to more children? I decided that I must find out. I wanted to face him and let him know that what he did will never be forgotten and if he is still doing it then he must stop. Please click below to read more on what happened.

My journey speaking out

33 YEARS OLD

I decided to begin sharing my story in public at open mic events in London. This is where you sign up and get 5 minutes on stage to perform what you wish to an audience. It could be music, an instrument, poetry etc. I decided to go as a storyteller and begin explaining what happened to me. Please click below to read more on what happened.
