The Recharge Room

A few weeks ago, I was asked by Roger Holdsworth to write another article for the Connect Magazine. This time the article is about the Recharge room that was at the 2017 VicSRC Congress. I also discuss a little about how this room could be introduced into similar events. The article can be found at http://research.acer.edu.au/connect/vol2017/iss226/I would personally like to thank Roger Holdsworth and the Victorian Student Representative Council for supporting my work over the past year. Tomorrow I will be In Melbourne to attend the 2017 Victorian Disability Awards as I have been named a finalist. Keep an eye on my social media and website for the results of the awards.

Newspaper Article On Pauline Hanson

Today I was asked by the Warrnambool Standard to share my thoughts on what Pauline Hanson said on Wednesday. You Can read the article here http://www.standard.net.au/story/4749775/advocate-says-hanson-should-educate-herself/?cs=72

I hold my peers back?

This is a good example of why we need to educate people of what it truly means to be autistic. According to Pauline Hanson, I hold my peers back because my teachers spend too much time helping me. She thinks we should be in special education and that we do not deserve a mainstream education. instead of segregating students like me, we should make mainstream education work better for us. What happened to the concept of inclusive education? http://www.9news.com.au/…/pauline-hanson-says-children-with…Bryce Pace Autism Advocate, Blogger, Speaker

Thank You Mum

Parents are an important part of anybody's life. They teach you everything that a teacher cannot and most importantly they raise you to be who you are. My mother is no exception to this as she has taught me to always accept difference. She is the reason I am advocating for a future of acceptance as she taught me that being different does not make you wrong. she not only taught me acceptance but she was always there when I needed her. I may have been bullied in Primary school however at home I was free to just be myself with no consequence and I thank her for that. I may not have grown up with a father in my life however my mother made up for that by teaching me everything I needed to know. I come home every day now with the knowledge that she is 100% behind me every step of the way. In the past year, she has stepped up and helped me by being my editor and business partner. I wouldn’t be where I am today without her which is why I write this special post for this amazing woman that I am lucky enough to be able to call my mother. I get thanked all the time for being an inspiration while my mother stands beside me being ignored and she says nothing. The next time you see her beside me think about what I have written today and how supportive she is. She is the true inspiration that needs to be thanked as if it wasn’t for my amazing mother I probably wouldn’t be so proud to be myself.

Thank you, mum for everything and happy Mother’s Day
