Spencer is a person who knows what he wants and likes taking initiative, whether it be buying an extra gift for himself for Christmas or looking after the barbecue.
He’s king of the barbeque. At any gathering, you’ll find him with the tongs preparing food for everyone or giving someone guidance on how to best cook the food.
When Spencer isn’t at home drawing or manning the barbecue, he loves going out. He speaks fondly of his support workers, recounting the time he was walking along the beach with Nick or in the Kia, cruising around the neighbourhood. He frequently mentions his good friend Alex who lives around the corner from him, recalling the time he was dancing with his friends at the monthly disco, and his mates from Jacaranda.
Scrolling through the gallery on his phone, Spencer reflects on the times he’s had at Jasmine since moving in July last year. Prior to permanently moving into Jasmine, Spencer spent some time at another Forsight home—Jacaranda.
As he flips through, a picture of a man in a party hat and a can of Coca Cola in his hand appears, and Spencer immediately stops.
“Matthew loves coke. He’s pretty funny.”
“Barbara’s wearing a hat too.”
Spencer has become close with a lot of his friends at Jacaranda and often visits.
From being the only person living at Jasmine to now living with two other roommates, Spencer feels he has settled in well into his new home at Jasmine.
His goal for the year now is to get a job so he can earn money for himself.
