DRC Living Life Connected
Introducing this weeks Hero!
Hi I am Chris, I am deaf but that doesn’t stop me one bit.
I started at DRC way back in 2008.
Over the years I have done incredible things like going to the Rugby, restoring a bike for my little sister, building a go cart and making tonnes of mates.
I have learnt to be more independent, I can cook my favorite meals (lasagna all the way) I go shopping and buy things myself (DVD’s and more DVD’s) my mum is not so keen on that ???? I am (with help from Kelle my support worker) helping more around my house by vacuuming and cleaning.
I am a shark at pool and a pro at Tenpin, I have many hobbies and love movies (Transformers are the best, hurry up 6th movie).
I have a Volunteer job!! I started at at For the Love of Animals in August last year and I am so proud of the work I do, I tried for a long time to find a volunteer job and it is such a huge achievement for me.
I am planning to go away on a Daytrip to Palmerston North so my new goal is to save my money, learning what I need to spend money on and what I do not.
