Dami: They all come with a wide range of creativity that you can't see from the outside until you get to know them
Quest: What’s one of your favorite memories from the past year?
Dami: When I became the Activity Coordinator, I was faced with many challenges including the ones I set out for myself. One of which was to help integrate our individuals into the Lethbridge community as if they had no disabilities. Help them enjoy some of the goodies of the city without being treated as "individuals" and it was a joyful moment for me when we were able to get a Pool tournament for them at Shotz Billiards and also crowning the first ever winner of the tournament in DBot. It was a fantastic moment as I felt like I was able to accomplish one of the biggest challenges I faced going into the new position.
