Just call me Woody. I've been called this all my life and it's rare to hear me called Kris (apart from Heidi). Just recently, i became Volunteer Support Worker for the Warren Project, which means i take care of all the volunteers, new & old in the Warren by offering courses, advice and, er... support!
Back at University working towards my degree in Youth & Community in September and i'm writing books on empowerment, participation and Active citizenship for the Hull City Council.
back to the older stuff that i've left on because i couldn't be bothered reading through it and changing it!
Ok then..I'm Kristofe Woodall MYP (it's pronounced like 'Christopher' not 'Kris-toff'; and the MYP means Member of Youth Parliament. I am 23 years of age and i have a bizzare -Bill Hicks sort of humour about things.
I've been politically active in Hull now for 6 years and have built positive reputations with leading councilors, MP's and so forth, and have recently become Chairman of the Hull Young People's Housing Committee. Previously, i have founded a free campaign group for under 25's called CHYP (Coalition of Hull's Young People) and have already successfully won 3 high priority campaigns and have established over 70 memebrs in it's first year.
I am also a part time musician and have played with several bands since the age of 11. I tutor guitar workshops, as well as songwriting and creative writing workshops too.
i was also a sound engineer for Butlins (Skegness) many years ago, as well as teaching sound engineering / multi-track recording seminars at the Warren Centre in Hull.
I've always somehow managed to keep a brave face, never showing how i truly feel about something or someone, it's a gift if you like? I've been through so much crap through the past 3 years, (2003-present) homeless, illness, near death experiences etc...You'd think that i would have learnt by now!
I'm strong willed, always determined to fight back, i take more care of others then i do myself and i've even saved lives. If you read the rants in the 'Define Normailty' section of my website, there are many examples of what i'm about and what i can truly offer to people.
I've put myself in so much danger through looking out for others! But this is what drives me, i feel that this is why i'm here.
I also have a beautiful, talented and amazing fiance...Heidi-Victoria Ireland (on here somewhere and dances too). I love her more then anything or anyone...ever!
Good luck sweetheart and all the best for future comps etc...! Love you always x x x
That's the soft bit over...sorry. Also at my space (usawoody).
