I’m Aaliyah. Nice to meet you.
There’s not much to say about me, really. I’ve always done OK at school, and my teachers have been trying to get me into further education. But I’m not sure I could handle two more years! I guess I might if Terry decides to carry on as well.
We’ve been seeing each other for four months now. Terry’s my first real boyfriend. There have been other guys, but this one is nicer… sometimes! It’s not all been great, but he can be a really nice guy when we’re alone together.
We’ve gone to some clubs recently, not that I’ve told my parents. They think I’m staying at a friend’s house. Terry and his mates love going out, and I’ll take any opportunity to get involved and make my friends jealous!

My name’s Jasmine and I’m a Youth Mentor.
I guess I started volunteering because I didn’t want anyone to go through what I did. When I was sixteen, I fell for the wrong guy. He got me into all sorts of trouble; he even got me to deliver for him.
I was heading down a bad path, but I didn’t think about it until… well, I don’t really want to talk about it. That was when I spoke with Andrez, one of the workers at the youth centre, and she helped me remove myself from that lifestyle.
I’ve been trying to build a better life for my little girl. She’s one now, and such a cutey! Andrez’s got me a job as a Youth Mentor, but she’s training me to be a Youth Worker! I like helping people, and I can see a lot of similarities between myself and Aaliyah.

Sorry ladies, I’m spoken for. I’ve got this sweet little ting called Aaliyah and I ain’t letting her go any time soon… unless I see Beyoncé down Lewisham! I fancied my girl as soon as I saw her and I wasn’t gonna let her get away, not for no one.
When I’m not with the GF, I’m hanging out with the boys. I’ve known J Stax for years (He’s hilarious, fam!), and he’s got me in with Budge and his crew. All of my other mates are stuck in school doing their A Levels, but I’m living the good life!
Budge is a busy man. He needs go-getters like me to help him out. I do what he wants me to do; it’s as simple as that. He even bought me some sweet new sneaks. Bang tidy Nikeys! I’ve got my girl and my boys; life is wicked at the minute!

The name’s Watson, Detective Dave Watson, and I’m a police officer in South East London.
Don’t get me wrong, I know what it’s like to be a young person in Lewisham and I know when kids are being kids. I just don’t want to see young people go down the wrong path.
I know the difference between a kid trying to impress his friends and a young person committing a crime they have been forced to commit. If they tell me the truth, I’m a good guy to know; but I’ll stick to the letter of the law if they refuse my help.
