National Disability Employment Awareness Month: Introducing Sagi!
October 16, 2018 | In: Autism Resources , Events
The next person we’d like to introduce in honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, is Sagi from We Rock the Spectrum – Jupiter/Tequesta!
Sagi Brodt originally started as a volunteer at We Rock the Spectrum – Jupiter/Tequesta 18 months ago. Fast forward to today, and Sagi has worked her way up to one of Jupiter’s paid employees!
Sagi’s typical work day looks no different than any of Jupiter’s other employees. She maintains safety in the gym, checks in customers, and cleans toys and equipment as needed. She recently took charge and volunteered to run Jupiter’s “Storytime” on Friday mornings!
Since Sagi started working at the gym, her self-esteem and willingness to try new things has increased tremendously! She takes constructive criticism well, and has become much more flexible in her critical thinking! Sagi loves meeting new people and coming to work at the gym! Her favorite part of her workday is playing with the kids! She loves helping kiddos and getting to know her customers and their families!
“There was a boy who wanted to do the zipline but was scared. She helped him realize that he could do the zip-line on his own and at his own pace. She enjoyed helping someone conquer their fears!” – Jenna Pignato, Co-owner of We Rock the Spectrum – Jupiter Tequesta.
“We enjoy watching Sagi grow and learn new things! She has taught us a lot about young adults living with ASD.” – Sarah Callahan, Co-owner of We Rock the Spectrum – Jupiter Tequesta.
