Occupations creating my occupational identity

  1. 1.  Being an Aunty to my three nephewsand niece is a huge part of my Identity. Isee it as being the best role model I canbe, which pushes me to become abetter person. I enjoy my time with themand it is constantly fun and refreshing tosee them grow as people.
  2. 2.  Huge area of my life not only throughplaying the sport itself but through themany interactions that are created.Allows me to constantly set new goalsand push me to become a betterplayer. Socially it gives me a wholedifferent culture and in many ways asecond family who I associate andidentify myself with.
  3. 3.  This Occupation allows me to createsomething for others and also for myself.Nothing beats the feeling of cooking ameal for others and seeing theenjoyment they receive from eating yourfood. In my flat the boys recognise me as‘camp mum’ as I love to cook and bake.
