"There's a saying I've thought about a lot these last few years. It's kept me going through tough times, and will keep me grounded:
'Your past does not determine where you go. It only determines where you start.'
I'm so grateful that FareStart took a chance on me. The road ahead won't be easy. I know I have to keep working hard - not just to advance my career, but also to repair the relationships in my life."
