Hello, my name’s Joseph. As a former mentee, I’m looking forward to put into practice all the things I’ve learnt from my mentors over the years.
Now, a bit about me. I am 19 years old, and I have a brother and a sister also 19 years old. Yep, I’m a triplet! And of course, I’m the intelligent, good looking, charismatic and humble one in the family.
I’m currently in my second year of university studying a Bachelor of Commerce/Laws degree. I love the law and politics, especially when trying to persuade other people to understand your viewpoint. I am an avid and confident user of technology. In my free time I love to read, socialise and watch movies.
I truly feel that people with a disability can, and do, actively and positively contribute to the community. I have a good understanding of the challenges that individuals who live with a disability face but like everyone else, not all people with a disability are the same.
I would be very interested mentoring people in:
building confidence in speaking up for yourself.
getting through high school and university life, especially on how to navigate the system as well as making the most of studying.
