I enjoy being a care ambassador because it gives me great pride to be able to share my experiences with other people.
I feel I have more understanding of the differences in people and their disabilities. I am now able to see the qualities people have rather than their disability, understanding feelings and opinions and really listening with interest. We have done work on communication skills and learning how patience is very important to be able to understand a person who has trouble communicating.
I am very proud to be able to share what I have learnt as a care ambassador with other people.
