Smile The New Kid - November 13th 2012, 08:48 PM

Hey lads, ladies and everybody else on the gender spectrum!

I'm Theo, I'm 20 and badly wanting to go back to the days of eating play dough at pre school, and I'm from Penzance which is a beautiful seaside town in Cornwall.

A little about me? I'm currently working as a barber which I guess makes me Edward Scissorhands' brother. I'm mixed race, my mum's English and my dad's Jamaican. I'm a pretty active person, I love football and play for the local team as a striker and spend quite a lot of time in the gym. I've been dancing since the age of 10, street, urban, hip-hop, and break dance are my preferred styles. Music is my way of dealing with my emotions, a pad, a pen and my guitar is my idea of therapy. A gingerbread latte and carrot cake from Starbucks are a match made in heaven. Oh, and I like Jaffa Cakes, a lot.

My little brother has quite severe downs syndrome which has unfortunately left him wheelchair bound. It breaks my heart to see his quality of life have taken such a battering at such a young age but I do all that I can to raise money and support charities who support the cause.

I'm also a huge advocate against domestic violence and abuse as this is something I've witnessed first hand and that has affected my family in the past.

I decided to join the site because I love speaking to new people and I like decent conversation that goes beyond talking about the weather. I'm also hoping that some of my past experiences such as the ones mentioned above will help me to help others.

It's nice to meet you all and I hope to talk to some of you soon.

Just because you're hurt, doesn't mean you're broken.

Thank you for all of welcome messages, it's real nice of you all

As for my brother, he's a true inspiration to me and one of the happiest little boys that you will ever meet. He really puts things into perspective and makes me realise just how truly lucky I am.

I hope to see you all around!

Hi there! I absolutely love Starbuck's gingerbread latte, but they aren't making them anymore where I live.
But anyways, if you have any questions just ask me or another buddy. I hope you're figuring things out okay!

And here you are living, despite it all.

Hi Theo, I'm Hailey! Welcome to TH! I can relate to the situation with your brother, because my brother has been battling cancer for 2 years now, but he is also one of the happiest, craziest kids you'll ever meet! Feel free to message me any time. It's great to meet you!
