“I need to learn to support myself. The difference is that this is all my ideas coming from inside. Spark doesn’t tell me to do anything, but they have given me the tools to change my life.”
“I have discovered a lot about myself. I didn’t think I had the capacity to be taught. My whole perspective has changed. My whole mind has changed, my whole life has changed. I have realised there is no ‘can’t’. I have reset my mind.”
“I was thinking about everything I talked about with my coach and I know you’ve proper woke me up this time. Violence isn’t me. It’s who I am around.”
“Before I was like a headless chicken, but the course helps you analyse your life and understand where your head needs to be – focused, determined and getting the most out of your time here.”

I can see it even with the please’s and thank you’s, and they’re, you know, learning to break the ice with officers and different inmates without having this persona of being a hard rock within prison, being this tough guy. It’s made an impact on them."
