Over twenty years ago, I arrived at Winnarainbow a very sad, scared, confused and at times angry eleven year-old child. I had been separated from my siblings and placed into foster care three years before and remnants of the physical abuse I endured in my early years still lingered with me. Three years in foster care had only compounded my fears and confusion. I had been placed in a home absent of love - no kisses, no hugs, and no reassurance.
In that next month, I stopped expecting the worst and instead for the first time in my life, I felt free to be a child. Besides learning to swim, stilt-walk and juggle, I also picked up life skills without even realizing it...how to channel my feelings of frustration and anger into more positive avenues...I learned to feel a connection not only to the Earth but to all who live on it...from stilt walking, juggling and African dance classes...I learned about trust and friendship...I learned how to let down my protective walls and just be a child having fun.
