A STUDENT who turned her life around is up for a top award.

Naomi Taylor, 19, has been nominated for the Youth Academy Award by staff at the Mersea Road Family Mosaic team who provide guidance and advice for young people on housing and budgeting.

When Miss Taylor became involved in the Family Mosaic scheme she was struggling with life and getting in trouble with the police and the team helped her to get back on track.

She is now up for the Youth Academy Challenger award.

She's 19? She looks more like 9! Tend to agree with the above comments but everyone deserves a second chance, don't they? Well, nearly everyone.

You don't know me, I have done plenty with my life thankyou very much, you haven't got a clue what I've been through!
