My name is Tanya. I joined ‘Foundation 4 Life’ shortly after moving down from Birmingham to London.
Growing up in Birmingham I experienced a lot of youth culture which is relevant to today in London. Also, my family background and lack of parental support led to my role into that subculture of criminality as a result. Having inhabited that lifestyle I feel that I am qualified to give young people a message that this lifestyle is not what it seems to be.
