Scottie’s Story of Coping and Resilience

Scottie’s Story of Coping and Resilience

Scottie will share the story of how he made his dream to be part of a model yacht club, and to operate his own boat independently, come true, despite the many challenges he faced as a person with a disability. For 5 years Scottie was a passive observer of a local model yacht club, until one day, when a bit of bad luck changed his life for the better. Scottie will talk about the challenges he faced, which ranged from money, to people miss-judging his abilities. Scottie will also talk about how his being part of the club has changed the perceptions of his fellow club members.
