Introducing Gina

To My Friends at the Self-Advocacy Association...

September 27, 2002
Hi, my name is Gina and I work at Ballston Spa. I would like to read to the kids at the nursery school. I think it will be fun.
I live with my mom and dad. I love to help around the house. I cook sometimes. I go out to dinner with my sister-in-law and I go to the mall. Anyway, my family is happy that I have a new job cleaning windows at the Getty. I would like to be a teacher and teach kids how to do math and to listen to things like music. I want children to understand how to read themselves someday.
I would like to teach children how to be good at learning, how to fix dinner or set the table, to eat or buy meals and to have a healthy meal. I was born with bi-polar disorder and its hard for me to remember things like how to clean my room and it's hard for me to deal with my mom; she had a stroke. I wish that she was strong. My dad helps out in the house and I love mom. I want her to walk again. This is very hard for her. I will do the best I can in my life and reach for the stars. Thank you very Much.
Sincerely Yours, Gina P.
