My name Is Rosie Lawrence- Slater and I am 28 years old. I was born in Cincinnati and have lived in my own apartment since 2012. I have worked at Kroger’s for nearly 5 years. In November, 2016, I finished my 90 day probationary training period and became a Kroger baker.
I attended the four day Project STIR “train the trainer” workshop in March, 2016. On April 20, 2016, I tried out and was chosen as a Project STIR state-wide trainer. I served as an assistant at the Worthington Project STIR training in October, 2016 and look forward to being a trainer next time.
I love teaching others how to advocate for themselves and how to make their own choices about what happens in their lives.
Soon I will ask the magistrate to let me become my own guardian. My family and my circle of support will advise me and help me make decisions when I need help.
