You Built Confidence & Connections

You Built Confidence & Connections

Jackie is a Special Olympics alpine skier, crafter extraordinaire, and has a passion for healthy eating and exercise. She receives services from St.Amant’s Supported Independent Living program and has enjoyed many of the virtual cooking and crafting workshops offered since the pandemic began.
 
St.Amant Foundation donors made those classes and 100+ other virtual recreation opportunities possible last year! There have been virtual dance parties, trivia nights, paint nights, cooking classes, bingo games, a garden club, and so much more.
 
Real friendships emerged and self-esteem improved! People started making plans outside of the scheduled events to connect. They also made suggestions for future events and some folks offered to host their own event, including Jackie.
 
 
Cupcakes may not be part of her regular training diet, but Jackie hosted a cupcake decorating class that allowed her to showcase her skills and build confidence as a presenter. This confidence will serve her well as she trains with the Special Olympics Team Canada 2022 Training Squad.
 
Thank you for making this possible!
