“My work will create a safe context where traumatised people can share their stories in the presence of unconditional acceptance and respect…”
My ‘work’? Yes!
We can only imagine how important that short word is to Lorinda Diedericks, specially in a world where so few blind folk ever find permanent work at all.
After years of study, she’s now on the verge of starting her dream career.
Having graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychological Counselling, Lorinda is now on her way to becoming a Narrative Therapist where she will work as a facilitator on the healing journeys of others in need.
“My work will not entail telling people what to do, but rather creating a safe context where traumatised people can share their stories in the presence of unconditional acceptance and respect.”
When you invest in the Blind SA Bursary Fund it does not end with a cap, gown and scroll at a graduation ceremony. It goes well beyond that. Lorinda’s story is the perfect example of this.
And she’s not the only one, just one example of the many students who, through a little help, are equipped to pursue their passions, and lead fulfilled, independent lives.
