the power of dreaming
David Savizon is proof that it’s never too late to pursue your childhood dreams. He began acting in 2014 alongside his already demanding job as a gangs worker for an Inner London Council.
Savizon and his team tackle highly-organised crime networks, helping to prevent young people from being recruited into gang life. They are responsible for trying to get troublesome kids – mostly those who have been suspended or excluded from school – to dream again and realise that their ambitions can be achieved, albeit with a little guidance.
