Jasmine Goon And who shaped you?

Age 16

16-18 year olds

My younger brother Kevin is non-verbal. His brain has developed differently to a neurotypical person. Despite my brother not being fully verbally communicative, he constantly inspires me to strengthen my integrity and acceptance of those around me. He, without words, has taught me how to develop approaches to other people’s lives positively. Observing and growing up with him has taught me to not pass judgement on anyone, both inside and out.
