Alanna – collaboration and contribution
“Working is important to me because it gives you something to wake up to every morning and have a goal. I think it’s like a self-esteem booster.”
Alanna works here at CID in Sydney.
She tackles lots of tasks here, such as presenting and training organisations on how to be more inclusive of people with disability. Alanna is a cherished member of the CID team.
She’s teaching us a lot about how we can improve the way we work with people with intellectual disability.
