EK IS VRY (1)
Angs is nie meer my tronk nie. Ek was ‘n slaaf van vrees. My aanvaarding van myself was ‘n belangrike stap op hierdie pad na Vryheid. My hart is rustig oor my verlede en my pad vorentoe.

I love school
A fun day for me, is a day filled with learning new things. When my brain is occupied, my body is much calmer than when I am bored. To have a calm body is absolute bliss.
The best day in my life.
I have been wishing to go to a normal school for as long as I can remember. To actually have that dream come true is the best thing that ever happened to me since being able to communicate.

If we then knew what we know now, things would have been so different, but we did not have the knowledge we have now.
We love each other, have learned, felt guilty, forgiven each other and now we are on the way forward.
MY WORDS ARE BEAUTIFULL
My words have always been in my head, but it was only after starting to use S2C, that everyone now knows of my words that can not get out of my mouth.
