June 2023

The month started with a fantastic morning talk at Five Islands Secondary College talking to students through Living Books and a thrilled afternoon making calls to community stakeholders for the unofficial opening of the Lifts at Unanderra Train Station – a long awaited and anticipated day providing equal access for all!! The very next day I was honoured to be included at the opening of lifts to the public which Unanderra Access Group had campaigned hard over the last 8 years to see become a reality. Richard Kramer was instrumental in starting this campaign to enable use of his local station.

On a roll and ready to go, a stall at Coles Berkeley seen more copies of my book purchased. Another meeting of Synapse took place with great discussions had by all. A few Orders came via the Online Store to purchase Shit!! I’m 26 and had a Stroke requiring another batch to be printed through SNAP Printing in Wollongong.

Half way through the month, I presented the concept of Altered Abilities to Community Industry Group and was pleasantly surprised the following week to be included in their Newsletter with some very touching words about the content in my talk (excerpt located in gallery). Towards the end of the month, I was interviewed by VOX FM in regarding the Lift Opening giving further information for listeners on the upgrades they can expect to see at Unanderra Train Station. The time in between was taken up with Administration and promoting Altered Abilities through local networks.
