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:
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.
This is us:
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
