On a warm and beautiful Tuesday evening on 26th February 2019, we had Ayman Barbaresco who presented his topic on Limitless Boundaries. At birth, Ayman has dealt with many medical complications during his young years including two brain tumours and ongoing medical complications with a genetic disorder called Neurofibromatosis.
Born in Sydney to a Jordanian father and Italian mother and relocating to Coffs Harbour (Northern NSW) at the age of three (3), living in a regional town for most of his life was a challenge not only for his medical conditions but also for access to services and organisations to support him during the time he was 'coming out'. In 2013 after his second brain tumour operation, Ayman relocated to Melbourne, Victoria where he commenced working at Professionals Australia in their Outbound Call Centre, became involved in many organisations including JOY 94.9, Victorian Aids Council and GLOBE Melbourne as well as completing a Diploma of Business in 2014.
Most of times people with difficulties find it hard to overcome or share their challenges, however Ayman reminded us that he is not a person with disability, he is a person with DIFFability. We also celebrated Rotarian Kay Ledson's Rotary Hero award for her commitment, dedication and superheroic spirit to promote Spinal Cord Injury (SPI) awareness through her Warrior Mumz international support group.
We like to acknowledge the visiting Rotarians & Guests that came:
