Start Small, Think Big

After two unsuccessful marriages, John’s mother had struggled to look after two children as a single mother, especially since the youngest son has SEN. His mother’s tendency to over-control has also led to strain on the mother-son relationship. With the support of ChickenSoup, John reconciled with his mother and has become hopeful for the future. Despite living in a worn-out subdivided flat, he never stops exploring his interest in STEM and hopes to become a start-up entrepreneur.
