When teenager Rachel first arrived at our Interim Placement and Assessment Centre, IPAC, she was moody and withdrawn, hiding her face under a hoodie, constantly planning to run away. She was elated when news arrived that she was going to stay with a relative. Unfortunately, her happiness was short-lived. Rachel returned to IPAC with bruises on her eye and body, more dejected than ever. Then the unexpected happened. Rachel responded to our encouragement and support by sharing her problems and worries. Her kindness shone through when she volunteered to shop for clothes for other children who were unable to go on a shopping trip sponsored by some volunteers. We knew that Rachel turned the corner when she initiated a sing-along karaoke. She gallantly learnt to play the cajon. On Family Day, there was not a single dry eye when her melodious voice rang out, Like a small boat on the ocean, sending big waves into motion, like how a single word, can make a heart open, I might only have one match, but I can make an explosion. This is my fight song, take back my life song, prove I'm alright song. My powers turned on, starting right now I'll be strong, I'll play my fight song, and I don't really care if nobody else believes, cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me, from Fight Song by Rachel Platten
