Giving back with Ghada

Today in ‘Time of Our Lives’ we talked to Ghada, a teacher aide for Down Syndrome Queensland (DSQ) who prides herself on making a difference in the community. Involved with DSQ for over a year, Ghada says that when she saw the opportunity to be a teacher aide for such a worthwhile organisation, she became passionate about making change in the community. With the goal of creating a meaningful career helping people, Ghada has fully immersed herself in her work at DSQ, helping young people with Down syndrome reach their full potential.
Through working at Latch On, Ghada says she has noticed how “our participants have grown this year through using more expressive language, being more resilient, and mostly having more confidence in themselves.” While building consistently positive behaviour and encouraging independence can be a challenge, Ghada loves her job at DSQ and wouldn’t change it for the world. When asked about advice for anyone thinking of getting involved with DSQ, Ghada suggests checking the website for programs and learning resources, as well as remaining updated on the DSQ social media pages. There are always opportunities and events to get involved in.
Ghada says that giving back to the community or volunteering with an organisation such as DSQ has had a massive impact on her life, and working with such inspirational young people each and every day is extremely motivating. We would like to thank Ghada for her time with us this week and wish her all the best for the future. We know she will continue to inspire the next generation of people with Down syndrome to live happy and fulfilling lives.
