Deillion is one of the most gregarious and passionate people that you’ll ever meet. He also lives with FASD; a disability that affects the executive functioning part of his brain. FASD is permanent brain damage caused by consumption of alcohol any time after the foetus is 3 weeks old.
Thanks to early diagnosis and a home for life family (who became FASD-informed), Deillion has been able to achieve a great deal. He recently started his first part-time job as an office junior for Base Station Tauranga.
Last summer, Deillion’s love for animals led him to volunteer on a dolphin watching boat. He loved getting to know people from around the world and he became very water-confident.
When we asked Deillion what he thought about volunteering, he recommended it as “a way to start a new life.”
