She told Simon: “Weet jy wat, it’s the first time in 10 years I’m in control of my life and love me or hate me, if it wasn’t for my situation I wouldn’t have been able to start creating this Harvey’s Law, and I’m all for helping people and using my position to be able to help others, especially like Harvey with the disability and to raise more awareness and do what I can now.
“I’m lucky enough to have turned my life around, I am here, I’m switched on and I feel brand new, and no one will ever, ever destroy me again.
“You know I’ve made mistakes in the past, of course I have, but then people don’t realise I was suffering at the same time. There’s always reasons why people do things and you rebel.
“I can only apologise that sometimes I acted the way I did because I was hurting and I didn’t know how else to let it out.”
