When it comes to peace, how would you describe yourself?
I am a born activist
What do you believe are the 'burning issues' today?
War, Hunger, Poverty, Education, Human Rights, Our Shrinking Freedom
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
Historically war has been fought for land etc. I can never reconcile the money wasted (eg Las Vegas) and the poverty and hunger in the world. We should fight the arms trade with a passion.
Can we change the world?
More about me
I am of Irish descent: my family came to Scotland during the Irish Famine. I believe because of this and my Catholic upbringing, I feel very connected to poverty issues, hunger, refugees and exclusion issues. I worked with people with psychiatric and learning difficulties and can empathise with all of their struggles in life eg bullying, coping etc.
We have one life, it is very harsh that some children spend theirs blighted by fear, war, poverty, disease and hunger.
I have just started an advocacy business for those who require assistance to deal with others eg business, legal, or medical companies etc. I will take up the issues of others less capable and give them outcomes they never dreamed possible.
