In light of recent negative behavioral patterns exhibited by some young people, there is one young man who shows you can make positive adjustments.
Adam Williams – a fourth-form student of the Happy Hill Secondary School has made what his mentors describe as an impressive behavioral change and opted to use his life story to motivate his peers.
Speaking to the teenager who was happy to tell his story, he says that at the age of 16 years old, he was involved in serval delinquent activities and was influenced by bad company.
This landed him in Grand Bacolet Juvenile Rehabilitation Center for one year.
Adam’s stay at the center was the foundation of his positive change as it was where he got to know god and devoted his life to him. He also credited his growth to other staff of the center who taught him to see life in a different light. He is now pursuing 11 subjects at the Happy Hill Secondary School and is the captain of the school’s Senior Football team, a prefect, a member of the Intercol team, and a Sports Ambassador and motivator.
The teenager believes that more should be done for young people who live in a vulnerable community that can foster delinquent behavior.
Adam also had this to say to young people who find themselves self-involved in activities that are going to lead them on the wrong path.
For those raising teenager or serving as mentors, Adam’s tale is one that send a strong signal that change is possible.
