At the age of 3 Mark Crandall was taken from his biological mother by the Department of Youth and Families and placed in the foster case system.
Thereafter, Mark endured multiple childhood traumas and without the appropriate tools to manage his pain and grief, he began to engage in criminal activity, started heavy use of drugs and alcohol, became an addict, and eventually ended up in prison.
Despite Mark’s downward spiral, Mark worked incredibly hard to beat the odds. On this next inspirational episode of Attorney Heart, Mark shares how he discovered the greatness within himself, despite having undergone so much adversity.
Mark has re-written the story of his life and he has dedicated himself to empowering others to do the same.
Mark obtained a Masters Degree in Social Work (MSW) in 2014 and became a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC) and Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) and has worked with disadvantaged youth, providing individual and family counseling.
Can't stay awake while studying? Try taking a coffee nap. When you are feeling drowsy from your studying, drink a cup of coffee, and then immediately right after, take a 20-minute nap. When you wake up, you will be ready to go with hypervigilance and focus. Studies show improved cognitive performance with coffee naps compared to just coffee or naps alone. Try it!

Recently, I was incredibly lucky to be selected by the university of Lincoln to attend an aspiring barristers event at Lincoln’s Inn.
I had the pleasure of discussing some incredibly interesting topics with barristers and QC’s which was an absolute delight! Even when I brought up the dreaded b-word (Brexit) across the dinner table. Nothing like breaking the golden rule!
Before the photo session, we spent a good hour and half discussing Human Rights violations done by State between the year of 1998-2000, which the kids on these photos were still a minor 😂😂, they did not experience the fear that was gripping not only in the capital city but nation wide. The demonstrations which caused open fire by the military, the burnt buildings (especially the Klender mall killing), the vandalism and raid and the rape on Chinese Indonesian women, we will never forget.
It will be interesting how this class project will turn out. 📸 by Depokrian @i_stammer
