Hello, I am Charlie; I am 22 and I live in the North West of England. I have been a Christian my whole life and my relationship with God is what has kept me going through all the different things that life has thrown my way.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

John 16:33 NIV

I am learning how to express myself, ask for help, encourage myself and become a more confident person. I have fought for many years to be comfortable in my own skin and in who I am. Sharing my story and my experiences is important to me, as not only does it help me express myself and release some of the anxiety I battle on a daily basis, but hopefully I can inspire and help other people to accept the differences in themselves and those around them; not to tolerate, but to love, accept and respect the very things that set people apart.
