Bradley Freeman, 38
Lives in Retreat, Cape Town
I grew up in Mitchells Plain with my sister in a loving family. I did well in high school until I started hanging out with the wrong friends, got involved in gangs and drugs.
This impacted my life badly, I ended up a junkie, in and
out, of prison for 13 years, there was no meaning left in my life.
I decided enough is enough and booked myself into rehab. I had been there before but this time I was ready.
Three months later, I came to an open day at The Appliance Bank, I made it through the recruitment process and have never looked back.
Now I am running my own successful business in retreat at a stand with a friend I met in rehab and who is also on the programme. I trade every weekend, I am doing very well.
I help others rid themselves of addiction as I am living at the rehab centre.
Thank you to everyone at TAB for giving me a chance to be able to run my own business.
