MUSICIAN and motivational speaker Paris Mitchell talked to Banksia Grove students recently as part of a WA Police program.

Mr Mitchell visited Joseph Banks Secondary College on February 23, speaking to year 8 to 11 students as part of the Police and Community Youth Centres (PCYC) North West Metropolitan Region program.

“This WA PCYC program aims to increase the number of accessible youth engagement programs in the northern suburbs,” program co-ordinator Chrissy Howard said.

“Paris delivered his powerful story, motivating and inspiring students by sharing his personal experiences of substance abuse, crime and how he has managed to overcome his adversity and transform his life.

“Paris drew on his personal experiences to deliver his message with a hope that he can help improve the lives of young students, in order to lead them on a path to success or possibly turn their lives around.”
