Hi! My name is Candice and I’m 21 years old. I live in Vancouver and have been at the Crisis Centre for about 7 months. I work full time at a local magazine… I love photography and used to work as a photographer. Love art in any form, music, movies, paintings. I actually enjoy the rain in Vancouver and love Christmas. I spend most of my time cooking, hanging out with friends. I love Grey’s Anatomy and the Sopranos. I love to talk to people and hear their story, whatever it may be.
Although my life as an adult only seems to get better as time goes on, I spent many years depressed and unhappy for many different reasons. I remember times as a teenager wishing to be someone else or to have someone else’s skin so that I could stop the feelings of loneliness and isolation. I remember hating every day of high school and feeling like my life would never get better. Because of my experiences I have a natural interest in talking to other people and hearing their stories. I’ve come to learn that no matter how perfect someone may seem, they still have a story to tell and adversity to overcome.
We’re here for you if you want to chat.
