Annelies Fujarczuk of Descriptor Communications believes regardless of who you are, what you have done, where you have been, or where you are going, you have the right to share your voice with pride.   As a speech coach and communications consultant, she is volunteering her skills to help Homes First residents taking part in our Speakers Bureau program tell their story.

 Annelies works with her clients, who come from all walks of life, to develop confidence and voice their experiences.   “I believe that who we are when we speak is so much more than a few words memorized from a page. We tell the story of who we are every time we open our mouths, and I encourage my clients to do so with pride and ownership”.

One of our residents who has benefited from the coaching expressed how good it made her feel to receive praise after sharing her story with others.  It is for this reason Annelies does what she does.

 Annelies is thrilled to work with Homes First. “Providing a home for those who have been rendered invisible is the first step towards building a new life, and owning the past. Working with Homes First means honouring the stories of those they serve, and I am privileged to be a part of it.”
