Harm Reduction Superheroes!

So last Thursday I did a panel speech and presented a workshop at YSB’s forum. It was called Building Bridges and it focused on youth ‘in transition’ from youth to adulthood and how we can better support them. Oh yeah, on a side note, things with Kristy didn’t exactly work out. I know, what a ...

Busy bee!
