We recently received the following heartwarming story from Giaan, 17 years, who is a client with our Short Breaks program:
I really love going on Short Breaks, it’s so much fun I have booked in 2 more!
Some of the things I’ve been doing include going out for dinner, making French toast, as well as learning to tie my hair in pig tails. I really enjoy hanging out and making friends with girls my age and who have similar interests as me. Sometimes it can be tricky for us to plan activities that we all enjoy, sharing common areas and living with different personalities, so I’m becoming confident in my negotiating skills. Not only are the Short Breaks fun but I am learning the skills that will allow me to move out of my family home one day such as cooking, shopping and doing the laundry. It’s really nice at the house because I can relax by using the trampoline, swings and tv. By sharing My Story I am hoping that other people can go on Short Breaks to try new activities, become more independent and meet new friends.
Thank you so much Giaan for sharing your story with us!
