Hey, my name is John!
I’m 16, living in Melbourne and I am a Young Carer. I look after my single parent, deaf mum and my little brother, aged 6.
Having a deaf mum can be difficult at times, making phone calls, interpreting for her, helping her with grammar and English language and helping around the house sometimes.
I also take care of my brother when my mum has to go shopping or when she has a shower. This can, at times be inconvenient if i am in an online class or if I’m working on something else.
I love to play basketball, listen to music, hang with friends and play on my xbox.
Overall I’m not coping too badly but it can be frustrating at times.
