My name is Rebecca. I came to live in my own home in October 2013. Before ubu’s support, I had been living with my mum, and I was used to her taking me everywhere in the car. However, now I enjoy going out for long walks with my enablers and going shopping.  I especially like discovering lots of new and different foods, cooking, and preparing my own meals.

But perhaps my favourite thing to do is to pour through books. I am always bringing my enabler a book to read aloud for me, whilst I sit in my comfy beanbag chair and listen. It’s the best!

I am starting to make new friends through different social activities, the most recent being a BBQ where we danced. I am very happy in my new home, and I am going to venture out into the community more and more.
