“The mum of a teenager who was drink driving when he became involved in a horrific deadly crash is making it her mission to ensure her son’s mistakes aren’t repeated.
But years on, Melissa is trying to turn her grief, and Jordan’s tragic decision, into something that helps other kids.
She now spends one day a week speaking in schools around Australia.
“I don’t seek to lecture the kids, or shock the kids, but I seek to take them on a journey of what it looks like when you make a wrong choice or a bad choice in your life,” she said.
Melissa is now hoping she can expand the program to deliver her talk to every high school in Australia.”I know that I can’t right Jordan’s wrongs at all, but this is probably the best thing that I can do,” she said.”I know that Jordan would be enormously proud that his death is not going to be in vain.”
Thank you to A Current Affair for shining a light on the movement for changed driving behaviours.
