Upon leaving school in 1999 Jeremy began a Degree in Psychology, before being tempted like many young people by the lure of the ‘party hard’ lifestyle and dropping out. As time passed and the lights dimmed, he was confronted with a critical life changing decision, hitting a personal rock bottom.
With the assistance of a valued mentor and friend, Jeremy made the decision to follow John’s parting words and ‘make every step count’. Rather than giving up on life, he chose to overcome adversity, and rebuild a future that has led him to ultimate success in finding true purpose and passion in life.
