At 15 years old, Ian was failing out of school due to missing over 116 days. He felt going to school was a waste of time, and had better things to do, like playing video games.
Ian always fought against the rules, which caused problems with his family and friends. He suffers from anxiety and it triggered him to resort to drugs, which lead him down the wrong path.
Over the years, Ian was put into local programs in order to help guide and motivate him to make better decisions. After the courts realized he needed more structure, Ian was briefly placed into a juvenile detention center before being referred to Highfields.
