What was one experience in your life that hardened you as a person?

I was away for military training outside of the UK when I got the message from my family:

Harrowing last moments of woman’s life were heard by boyfriend, court told

The ‘girlfriend’ is my cousin. She was raped and murdered last year at age 34.

I’ve spent my last 3 years living around the world and having an amazing time

I’m now back in London for the next few years (it’s no coincidence) and make a point of seeing my 2nd cousins (my late cousin’s niece) every week.

What has it taught me:

  • My family above everything
  • Life is short. Spend it with the one’s you love
  • And if you love them - show them everyday. There will come a day you can never show them again
  • In the blink of an eye it could all be gone
