For Pomfrett, who has gone through homelessness, psychiatric wards, suicide attempts and five different prisons to get to where he is now, this isn’t an opportunity to throw away. “I’ll never go back to the way I was, no way,” he says. “It’s just good to wake up every morning, go to work and earn money. Having this job, I can walk down the street with my head held high.” From the Guardian.
