The curious case of the normal but amazing Rionne Williams

Posted: April 17th, 2014

If you were to ask me the main reason why I get out of bed in the morning, it would be to help young people that, for whatever reason, were not lucky enough to have a mainstream, ‘normal’ education – school, college, university. This is almost always because of an unstable home life with a dodgy parent or two.

That certainly was the case for myself growing up and so I have always made it my aim that when I spot others that come across my path (and it is always easy to spot them), that this would be my way to repay the gift of life that I was given.

Despite the horrific start that I had as a human being, an angel in the form of a man called Samuel Bromley thwarted away the evil and held the future open just enough for me to scrape through. I was extremely bruised and mentally affected, and for many years, while being forever grateful to the man, wished that he had just let me be, let the mundane life I was born in to swallow me up just like it has to many of my friends and family. Silly me.

So when I get the chance to ‘fix someone’, steer someone in the right direction, I have to admit, I go in with both feet, unabashed, and willing, fully, to get exploited, upset, stressed, frustrated, happy, euphoric and every other emotion that you can think of. I want to do for my ‘victim’ that Samuel Bromley did for me. It is all worth it and despite having to have a personality that ranges from embarrassing dad to uber geek to get the point across, I give my all to the cause, willing to suffer being anything from annoying to oppressing in the meantime.
