BLENNZ Nelson farewells Emil as he moves to Auckland to participate in the Kickstart Programme in 2015. Emil came onto the Nelson roll as a pre-schooler and has been a real success story.
He has been an enthusiastic user of technology throughout his schooling and has achieved NCEA Level Three. He has developed into a very resilient, empathetic and upbeat guy with a great love of life.
With the support of his family, he has embraced many of the opportunities offered by BLENNZ and the Blind Foundation to explore new experiences and develop his skills, eg. BLENNZ Immersion courses and local VRC activities, Blind Foundation activities and Leadership Course and the sailing experience on the Voyage of Inspiration. Emil has most certainly developed the skills to be a very effective mentor to other BLENNZ students in the future. Go well Emil.
