Born and raised in Lozells, Birmingham, an area plagued with gun crime, drugs, prostitution and gangs and infamous for its race riots, I forever found myself in the wrong place at the wrong time. I was lucky to walk away without being arrested or stabbed. A friend of mine was not so lucky - he was shot dead on his 20th birthday.
Two weeks later, another friend was gunned down in broad daylight. A lot of young people are growing up with no role models and nothing to do. After taking part in a mentoring scheme run by the Media Trust, I have rubbed shoulders with world leaders, interviewed the prime minister, and am now on a journalism course.

I think there are also worries about people with learning disabilities having relationships. Facebook is also good. But young people need more places to go. Sometimes you have to take five buses to get somewhere, or the buses run at stupid times. About 30 people come along and we chat and I DJ.
There should be more clubs like this, and the government should send out a survey to young people with learning disabilities to ask them what they want to do. People need the opportunity to try something new. My brother spits, speaks in phrases rather than full sentences, and is hyperactive.
