He was financially excluded from university in 2015 after his father lost his job. He eventually managed to finish his degree and tried to find a job immediately because his family had no breadwinner. He has not been successful so far.

"I have been pretending to be doing well for 2 years, I have been pretending to be okay for 2 years"

The distraught young man said that seeing his family suffer daily while he held a qualification breaks him. He finds comfort in alcohol, social media and sleeping pills.
