Adult Education has given me the opportunity to grow and expand my capabilitiesby Baljeet Bhogal
My name is Baljeet Bhogal I am a student on Life Skills classes.
I have attended classes at Adult Education for a number of years, and can honestly say that learning has helped me a great deal with my social and practical skills. Since attending classes my confidence has grown, I have learnt many new things and feel much more able to participate with all activities that I encounter every day.
Attending classes has opened up many opportunities. I have made many new friends which in turn introduced me to the Special Olympics. I started to play table tennis as a hobby which soon turned into a passion. I now play table tennis for the Wolverhampton Special Olympic team and have done so for many years.
In 2017 I took part in the Special Olympics in Sheffield where I won several medals at different levels. Every year we go to Special Olympics tournaments/games and in the summer of this year I took part in the Anniversary Games in Stirling Scotland, and through hard work and determination I won gold. My biggest accomplishment yet! I aim to continue with my sport, working my way through the levels and one day hope to take part in the Olympic Games playing alongside world class athletes.
Adult Education has given me the opportunity to grow and expand my capabilities; I hope to continue learning and growing in confidence.
