“My experience so far…” with Marianne Rosa
Marianne Rosa is a Best Buddies Pre-Ets participant who has exemplified perseverance and hard work over the last couple of months. Here she highlights what she’s learned through her first month with Best Buddies, and gives advice to those starting the program.
“Best Buddies has helped me in more ways than one, especially who they had assigned me with.” Marianne was starting our Pre-Ets program with employment consultant Donna Morgan, “At first, I wasn’t too happy with having to start this, but the very first meeting I had with her she was so very welcoming and gave off the greatest type of energy,” Marianne wrote, “If I’m being completely honest, she is a blessing in disguise. She has been able to actually take the time and understand people’s points of view and tries to better understand the feelings of others even though she may not have been in the same position, or can relate to certain problems others and I are dealing with she tries and puts herself in that person’s shoes. The Best Buddies program has played a part in my growth as a person in the month that has passed by I feel like it has helped me understand myself a little bit more and helped me grow as a person. As I continue with the program it could do amazing things for others, not only myself. You just have to trust the process… and give it a proper chance.”
