Peer Mentor

Hello, my name’s Joseph. As a former mentee, I’m looking forward to putting into practice all the things I’ve learnt from my mentors over the years.

I am an avid and confident user of technology. In my free time I love to read, socialise and watch movies.

I’m in my fourth year of university studying a Bachelor of Social Science/Laws degree.

I also have some experience in conquering depression after going through a real rough patch between 2016-17.  My lived experience has taught me how to overcome challenges.

I truly feel that people with a disability can, and do, actively and positively contribute to the community.

As a mentor, I can help you:

  • build confidence in speaking up for yourself
  • getting through high school and university life
  • develop skills in looking and applying for a job
  • help cope with mental health challenges
