2014 Ambassador – Brett Robinson

 

 

6605 BR Jan 28 201443 (2)

Brett Robinson, 2014 Easter Seals Ambassador

Hi, my name is Brett Robinson and I am very pleased to be this years Easter Seal Ambassador. I am the 15 year old son of Lynn and Dave from Mermaid. I have the best older sister ever, her name is Jade. I am me before CP!

Cerebral Palsy does not get me down, don’t you think it does. I am a person before my difference of abilities. I am so honored to be this years Easter Seals Ambassador, when I was asked “Why?” I said to honor my Grandpa in heaven, he would be so proud of me. I enjoy life so much and do not miss out on a thing! My motto is Think it….Dream it….Live it! I felt like I was in a dream when my family told me. A dream come true for me. I want people to dream big and live their best life. I do!

When I was born I weighed nine pounds and four ounces, born on my due date. I had a lack of oxygen at birth and the result was Cerebral Palsy. I have a lot of support from friends and family. My Nana fundraised to get me a wheelchair accessible van. She had a lot of community support and I will never forget what that meant for me. It made it so much easier to get around! Easter Seals support a lot of important programs and I hope this campaign can help Islanders with disabilities get the support they need. Throughout my journey as 2014 Easter Seal Ambassador I hope to bring awareness to my communication device. I feel so lucky to be able to share my thoughts with the world. I use head switches to scan and select through my screens. I started with non-traditional communication at the age of three with four categories and now have unlimited space for words and phases. I am now able to email and search the web. With a recommendation from Physical Medicine Department at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital they helped to make this possible, I was able to go to Bloorview Rehabilitation Centre in Toronto where all things are possible. They have enriched my life and for that I am very grateful. I hope all Islanders can get the support they need.

I attend Charlottetown Rural High School and am in Grade 10. The support I get at school is amazing! I love school and always try to do my best! As you have noticed, I am a non – traditional communicator and am in a wheelchair. I use a walker at school. Pat and the Elephant take me to and from school everyday, this is the best service in helping me to develop my independence. I want to thank my drivers so much for the work they do. I go to Special Olympic bowling and attended Music Therapy. I enjoy public speaking, kayaking, hanging out with friends, playing music and going to church. In the summer I love to visit Oak Bay in New Brunswick with my dads family, we sing by the bonfire and roast marshmallows. This is a very special time for me. I enjoy riding on the back of dads motorcycle. I met a wonderful friend that takes me for rides in his airplane. I have a great sense of humor, am very social, love to laugh and tell jokes.

I do presentations on Disability Rights Issues, with the help of Jade. I have spoken to Health PEI, Occupational Therapy Atlantic Conference, Holland College Courses, and English Language School Board. I was named Honorary Captain for the day from the Fed Ex team at the Summerside Airshow. I am excited to see what my future will hold. With the changes in technology “ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE”. When I met Rick Hansen he autographed a photo saying that phrase. They are words to live by for me.

I work very hard for all of my achievements, I am determined and motivated by all the wonderful people in my life. Without their support it would be difficult. I thank Easter Seals for this amazing opportunity to help to build awareness. I hope all Islanders in similar situations can get the support they need to help them achieve their goals. I love you PEI, thank you for listening!

God Bless!

Brett
