Shine, who dealt with various forms of neglect in her youth, was introduced to alcohol at the age of 10 through the daughters of her father’s girlfriend, and its consumption became a common pastime in her life. In early high school, Shine searched for a supportive community, but only found friendships with students who used various drugs.

Over the next several years, Shine faced ups and downs in her battle against addiction. At the age of 27, Shine found that her desire to reach sobriety was finally supported by an newly realized grit and resolve to conquer her substance abuse.

Previously, Shine had never experienced peers and leaders challenging her and her beliefs about her addiction in the way the people at the Perpetual Help Home challenged her.
