Callum Hutchinson has navigated the criminal justice system since he was 16 years old.
All his crimes were closely connected to alcohol abuse, but not once was it suggested to him that he should address his use of drink.
In his essay, Callum describes in extraordinary detail what happened when he was stabbed nine times during a violent assault.
He goes on to explain how he was offered an exit ramp from crime.
Callum's essay comes from the book Humane Justice, published by the charity Khulisa as part of the Monument Fellowship.
