Here Maresa talks about the importance to young people of adults who believe in you.
TranscriptIt’s absolutely vital. Without Caroline and the home school experience, who knows where my worth would have come from. Today even, I don’t look back on that period without an undying sense of gratitude towards those who believed in me. A young disabled person needs just that, that sense of being a valid and valuable part of the world to get by the negativity and often struggle.
