My Zest for Life.

Stephanie Scott

"Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong." - Ella Fitzgerald

 

Growing up, I had a great uncle named Davey who had Down Syndrome. He became such an inspiration to me. No matter the obstacles, he was always smiling, making others laugh and was so full of life. I thought a lot about the quality of life of those around me, my community, my family and friends, and wondered how I can make a positive impact in their lives. Everyone deserves a fullfilling life and a life of purpose. I wanted to be that person to help them find their inner sparkle and let it shine. Help them see their potential and help them reach it. I wanted to contribute towards making them feel valued and of worth in today's society. This is where it all began. In 2007, I went to university and completed my Bachelor of Arts in Child and Youth Care. I have been craving for opportunities, professional development and further education ever since. I think I have found my passion. My zest for life.
