"Barbara and her daughter Jaime-Lee are wonderfully creative, inspiring people. Despite challenges, Barb has always ensured Jaime-Lee has a strong voice, explores her many interests and makes her own choices in living a good and fulfilling life. Recently Jaime-Lee and Barbara were guest speakers with My Choice Matters and told their story with honesty, passion and humour.”"

Good afternoon Barbara,
Just a quick email to say a huge thanks for the workshops and of course judging the dramatic minds festival. The youth workshop was a huge success with some vulnerable youngsters that are still speaking about the fun that was had. The workshop gave our young people some quality skills that they can use personally to improve their general well being but also improved their drama skills. The young people in our community have benefited, long after you have left, from your energy, kindness and willingness to be so approachable.
