This year, I finally managed to do something that has been on my bucket list for years: Going to America.
For many reasons, I never thought such a thing would be possible for me but my wish came true in the best way.
This summer, I worked as a counsellor at Shady Oaks, a disability camp in Homer Glen, Illinois.
I never thought I’d be right for such a job but my experience has been an unforgettable one.
I can only describe the campers, regardless of whether or not I worked with them personally, as superheroes.
Because these amazing people have the most important and most valuable power in the world, they can put the bad things aside, put a smile on their face and have an amazing attitude to life.
I feel like the campers, their families and their carers have saved me and gave me a reason to live, knowing that such pure and overwhelming positivity exists.
I feel so proud and privileged to have worked with an amazing group of campers, families and staff.
Everyone at Shady Oaks is a superhero! Thank you
