Day 44 International Red Shoes Rock Virtual Relay Race – Congratulations to Tisha from South Africa!
Mac got really excited when Tisha decided to run with us! She is from South Africa – so on his way around the globe he stopped by to pick her up.
MEET TISHA – Tisha is 20. She came into our family at 10 weeks old as she was abandoned at birth. She was a premature baby with a lot of challenges and wasn’t expected to live more than a few days after she came to her family.
MY STORY – I am 20 and had to attend special needs school. I have a full-time job that I love and have friends. I like watching YouTube. I cannot read or write or do numbers. I have difficulty remembering.
STRENGTHS – I like people and I am friendly. I have a full time job. I try my best. I talk about FASD to warn women about drinking alcohol when pregnant.
STRUGGLES – Not being able to read and write, this is very difficult. Not understanding money so I don’t know what to pay for things or if I should get change.
MY WISH – Is to stop women drinking alcohol during pregnancy and that’s why I create awareness whenever I can. I go on TV, Radio, Newspapers etc and I always ring a bell at events on International FASD Day 9 September at 9.09am
