The Sound of Silence

When I decided to start my adventure as a support worker, I was in a transition period of my life, and didn't know what I was looking for. I have always been inclined to help others even when I had tons of things to do, and with life being so frenetic it's not always possible to have the energy to translate this attitude into practical acts.
