In this episode of ‘Minutes With’, we sat down with Pride of Britain Award Winner Hezron Brown.
As a child, Hezron suffered life changing burns – and struggled to control the anger and rage he felt throughout his childhood. Kicked out by his mum onto the streets at 11, he fell into Birmingham’s biggest gang, where violence, guns, and crime became part of his every day world.
Faced with a ten year prison sentence, he was given a second chance that turned his whole life around. He’s since dedicated his life to working to prevent other young people from falling through the same cracks in the system.
