From Armed Robbery to Welding
Paul’s father died when he was 12 and he was very affected by it. “When my dad died I just left school.” He started drinking, smoking marijuana and participating in armed robbery. By 18 he was imprisoned for 6 years for car-jacking. He said prison was very tough. “I (would) just hate to go there (again).” When he came out of jail, he saw that people in his community were afraid of him. “When people used to see me they used to get scared. I saw that and I was not happy.” For Paul the most significant change in his life is to develop skills. “I want to expand my mind.” At the end of the program he would like to do further training to become a welder.
