ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Nicole Ryan

Nicole’s story began in Jan 2016 when Alex, her brother, went to a house party in Cork City and took a synthetic substance believing it to be a less potent drug called 2-CP. He thought he had done his research on the substance he was trying, but he lost consciousness and 4 days later sadly died. Nicole wanted what happened to her family to never happen again so she decided that Alex would change the world and she would be his catalyst and storyteller.

 

Nicole is a social entrepreneur and expert in her field. She has been facilitating drug education workshops for over four years.
