My Favourite Quote
“Why can’t progression be categorized? You cannot accredit someone learning how to write their own name or create a piece of art that has raised their confidence and allowed them to interact with a group. That’s where I live and work and operate from: literacy to those early stages of people to find themselves on their journey within their own life.”
