"Addiction took a hold of my life at a young age. I so desperately tried to fit in so I succumbed to the pressure and tried it. Instantly I felt free from everything that ever hurt me. When I had pain drugs were there. When I felt alone drugs were there. The deeper I got the more I needed. I felt myself change into someone I wasn’t and I thought there was no escape from the addiction. I didn’t see myself having a future. I actually never thought about the future at all. I only thought about getting that next high. Life changing events occurred and I was given an opportunity for a second chance, a chance to live. Now I use every second making music, telling my story and making a difference in as many lives as I can. This is who I really am! This is my purpose and this is my story!" - Mindy Davey
