In one post Noriega claimed: “I’ve been struggling with addiction since I was nine years old, you may think that’s crazy, but that’s the life I’ve been dealt. I would like to use the influence I’ve been given to create a space built on spreading awareness and normalising talking about mental illness.”
After discussing plans he had to ‘open up a rehab centre’ for people suffering from trauma, he continued: “One of the many things I’ve learnt while struggling with addiction is that surrounding yourself with negative people will only bring you down.”
