I am from Ireland.

I speak English.

I want to share a story about moving from an institution to my own apartment.

My 7 word autobiography is – traveling, working, speaking-up, living independently, music & Elvis,  football.

I joined the VOICES project because I thought it would be good to tell my story.

My favourite thing was getting to know the people and working with them to tell my story.

What are you hoping to learn from the project?

I am hoping to get a lot of feedback from my story and hoping it goes well.
