Change the story of a young Queenslander at risk today
“When I was younger, like when I first started school, even kindergarten, I was bullied all through school until high school. My dad was like abusive towards me for twelve years straight when my mum left, and I was scared to tell anyone. I actually calm down most of the time from me doing my boxing. My first time going to the boxing class (at PCYC) we did work outs and stuff. I couldn’t even do a push up! Now I’m really calm, and I can actually talk to people sometimes. I’m more of a positive person than I was back then. It’s like a safe place for anyone. Practically, you don’t have to worry about anything or nothing. You meet new people, talk to new people. Not really worry about much. Just get along with anyone.” Jesse, PCYC Queensland Member
