“It’s funny I called you Tinkerbell for so long but you really are, it’s like you flew into my life and sprinkled magical fairy dust and made everything ok. We clicked so well and that made it so much easier. You did the unthinkable you got my voice heard. You are understanding of situations and non- judgemental.
Working with you was beneficial in many ways and you helped me with my self- confidence,
self- belief and emotional understanding. You changed my life! I will be eternally grateful.
As advocates you say it how it is. You’re the microphone for every child.”
