Lewis had a sheltered childhood from being home schooled, and suffered from depression after seeing it first hand from someone close to him.
After his enrolment at college Lewis felt alienated and alone. He suffered from such bad depression that he attempted suicide. Signing up to The Prince's Trust Enterprise Programme helped him set up his illustration business giving him a fresh start.
Lewis was home schooled till the age of 16 and missed out on a fully socialised childhood. From the age of 14, after seeing someone close to him suffer with anxiety and depression, he experienced it himself and didn't know how to cope. He enrolled at college which he saw as an opportunity to finally lead a normal teenage life but sadly the reality was quite different.
The turning point came when a friend of Lewis' pointed him towards The Prince’s Trust for support in setting up his own business as a professional illustrator.
With support from The Trust, Lewis is building a successful business doing what he loves and has turned his life around.
