TN's story

“I'm 19 years of age living on Westminster’s Churchill Gardens Estate. I have been living there all my life.

Growing up on the estate I am right now on the street trying to make some money to buy myself and my daughter some clothes, shoes and food. I had my daughter when I was 17 years old, this is when I realized how important life is.

On the estate I have had so many encounters with the law enforcement, other gang members from other estates and also grown adults who don't seem to understand me and my friends.

I believe photography has helped me to have a better understanding and view on my life, I see where I'm going wrong and where I'm going right but the one thing I need is extra support to be able to make the right decisions.

In future I want to be a web designer and I can say that taking pictures has helped me focus much better. I now also know how to use a camera so when I am designing, I can also use my own pictures to create people websites”.

Positive View has transformed TN’s life and he is now working as a trainee designer with a Soho web Agency.
