People who know me say I’m quietly determined, a quiet achiever. A while back, I made a plan to go back to live in Kununurra, have my own home. I have good memories of my school days there and friends I want to be with. I want to work, drive my own car and grow veggies. I want to be independent.  I’m getting better at speaking up. I used to not talk. Now I’ll say if I don’t understand something.  It takes me a while to feel okay to talk with people but I’ve found some good ones.. They’ve helped me and now my plan is happening. I’ve now got a place to share in Kununurra while I find my own place. We’re planting vegetables soon. I‘ve got a job in Kununurra.  Next thing is to start saving for my car.
