My family had a miserable life because of alcohol, drugs, and gambling. My father was addicted to drugs and my mother was an alcoholic. They fought a lot and got a divorce when I was 11 years old. I started smoking and drinking when I was 14. My life became darker and darker. I tried to commit suicide 3 times because I didn’t know how to get out of darkness. In 2019, I attended IYF World Camps in Springfield and New York. I was able to make many new friends and participate in many activities. Through the mind lectures I listened to, I was able to have a dream. Now I am living in South Korea as a Good News Corps volunteer. I teach English and do many different types of volunteer work. I’m so happy and thankful for my new life and new hope for my future.
