    Mental Health Advocacy- Festus

    FESTUS: My name is Festus Maronga and this is my story. In 2012 I developed signs of depression. And before I was diagnosed. It was already the beginning of 2013. It was serious. And I was taken to hospital. The doctor said I had depression and epilepsy. I was then given medication. And that’s what I have been using since. In the beginning, my parents were helping out. But after I came to study in Nairobi. They helped out a lot less. I don’t know why. But I think they felt my expenses were higher than my siblings’. Things got worse. And it even got to a point where I…

    r/maliciouscompliance | I changed the LAW to get out of Speeding Tickets…

    How my father got out of so many speeding tickets they had to change the law OCM My father has been a lawyer here in BC, Canada for more than 30 years. When he was starting out in his 30’s he was hustling hard to support a stay at home wife and me, his young son. As he was very much a type “a” personality with not much patience he sped on the highways, often. And he got speeding tickets, often. However, he took every single one to court and had every single one overturned. The reason was quite simple. At the time Canada was in the process of switching…

    Internship paves way for Jane and Tyson to secure traineeship

    It was really hard, there wasn’t really much advertised. I didn’t exactly have many qualifications as well. But I actually applied for one of the traineeships, got into the interview and then I passed that. I was looking for work since Christmas and that went on until June, until I was put into this. In this case, it was particularly valuable to have the Youth Jobs PaTH Programme involved in the overall traineeship program to really orientate themselves to what it’s going to be like to be employed. So it’s invaluable in that sense to get them job ready. I did an internship for four weeks, which was really good.…

    PDS Criminal Law Internship Program Testimonials (2016)

    [MUSIC] KEVANN GARDNER: I had first learned about the PDS Law Internship Program from a family member that was actually working at PDS. The way they described the program was different than other internships that I knew about at the time. So I went on the PDS website, and I did a little research for myself, and it just looked different than any other internship that was being offered while I was in college. JON W. NORRIS: At PDS, the interns work as intern investigators. At PDS, they’re responsible not just for working with clients and interviewing clients, but going out on the street, knocking on doors, talking to people,…
