Past Easter Seals Ambassadors

Erin Boe

BC Easter Seals Ambassador 2010-2011

When the British Columbia Society for Children with Disabilities read Erin’s article Autism Opens Doors in the Richmond Review we knew that she would make a great ambassador. Within minutes of meeting her, it was apparent that she was excited and eager to become an Easter Seals Ambassador. Her first question was, “is it possible to be an Easter Seals Ambassador for more than two years?”

Erin was diagnosed with high functioning autism when she was three years old. At her first event as an Easter Seals Ambassador, Erin was in her element. She gave a self-introductory speech, led a Jeopardy Game and took the initiative to introduce herself to many individuals in the room.  This did not come as a surprise to us because Erin is an active member of her community.

Erin attended BC Easter Seals Camps for many years either at Camp Winfield or Camp Squamish and she still tells everyone why camp was so special for her: a place she could fly as high as she could on the big swing, reunite with friends, and make special memories.  Erin is still highly involved with Easter Seals and participates / fundraises for many of their special events including the Easter Seals Drop Zone. 

 

 

Sarah Cheung

BC Easter Seals Ambassador 2010-2011

When we first met Sarah we were inspired by her ambition to live everyday to the fullest. Sarah has inspired her community by being a 2010 Paralympics Torchbearer.

Sarah Cheung resides in Vancouver, BC and is attending the University of British Columbia.  She was diagnosed with Type 1 Spinal Muscular Atrophy when she was nine months old. During her spare time Sarah enjoys engaging in everyday teen activities such as chatting with her friends on MSN and Facebook, and watching American Idol with her parents.

Sarah referred to Easter Seals Camp Squamish as her “second home” to everyone she met.  During an interview with Global News at the 2010 Paralympics 24 Hour Torch Relay, she expressed gratitude for support from her Easter Seals Camp Squamish “family”. Sarah describes camp as a place where she can forget about her disability and let her worries fall by the way side. While at camp Sarah loved to tie dye, roast marshmallows by the campfire and engage in conversation with new and old friends.

She loves to attend Easter Seals Camp where she can meet new friends, swing in the giant swing and participate in arts and crafts.
