One Aberdeen woman tells her story as a novel, writing her tale that takes the reader from drug addiction and homelessness into her new life of entrepreneurship. According to STV News , Sian Ajose hopes that her story, “Teenage Kicks,” will inspire other women in a similar situation to get clean.
She spent years, sleeping on the streets in her addiction. Ajose attempted several times to get clean, but finally managed it on her own. She now runs a successful fitness studio.
The 38-year-old put her story onto paper, publishing a book about turning her life around. She said, “I was collapsing in the street. I was so embarrassed to be a young woman at 22 and really dilapidated. I am amazed I survived and I’m doing really well, but there were really bad times. I’ve already had reviews of the book from women who say it’s changed the way they feel.”
