SLES blog: My time at SLES

Tristan, SLES participant


My name is Tristan Rosato and the main thing I do at SLES is try to find work related to my passion of reading and writing, I also do work experience down at the warehouse and on Mondays I also do my MOE life skills work.

During my time at SLES I have learnt about things like travel training and budgeting, I also learnt a lot about how technology plays a big role in our lives and I also learnt how to work with different types of people.

I get along very well with my group, we are always laughing and chatting about stuff and we work extremely well both in teams and individually.

Last year I learnt a lot about how to use online meeting apps like Teams or Zoom. I loved watching BTNS, doing Kahoot and learning how to do things like plan an entire online schedule around travel training. I also loved working on my blog and improving my writing and storytelling skills.

I have loved reading and writing since I was young and my dream is to one day become a successful writer.

I think what helped me get through last year was my family (my mum in particular) and the SLES team. I loved going for walks around the neighbourhood with Mum or learning new things with the SLES team. I think we should all be proud of ourselves for working hard and for always being there for each other.

Hope you liked my story!
