Mel RJ Smith


I was born in 64 and spent my youth growing up in the 70’s and 80’s and yes I had some adventures along the way. I left school, no uni for me, none of my siblings did, we were lets say a low income family. I have my life experiences growing up and the at the tender age of 21 I took on a ready made family, a single mum and pregnant too. But of course you will find all this out in my story, I say story not book, because it is my story. Then life went on, times changed, things happened until I got where I am today, with a career in hospitality. Yes sometimes life was a struggle but you only get out what you put it. So without giving to much away, that’s me.
