Creativ Minds Staff Profile

Hi, I’m Trude!

Disability Mentor & Support Worker

Hi, I’m Trude, rhymes with food. I get along with people and animals. I like butterflies. I have three cats and a small dog (Pomeranian X) I like to spend time driving my car. I’m very outgoing, I have a dark, but silly sense of humour and I love music.

What is important to me?

I am a foster parent, most of my kids are grown up now. They mean the world to me, I still think of them as my kids, and always will. I didn’t intend to become a foster parent, but it turned out to be the best choice in my life. My friends are such huge parts of my life, I couldn’t imagine life without them. For friendships age is just a number, my best friend was born in the same year as me, 1970, but I have close friends and connections varying in ages. Friendship is about how hearts and minds connect. I have some of the most wonderful friends alive.

I’m super passionate about helping people. I not only foster young people, but I mentor them as well. I need to work in helping people. I’ve tried office jobs, but they don’t keep me happy because I’m not hands-on helping people. Most importantly I like to help people to help themselves.

I like to be creative, I like doing things with my hands. I like making things, and drawing and painting things. My favourite thing to make is butterflies. I also like reading, I especially enjoy sci-fi, fantasy, crime and horror, although I read other books too. I also like writing, just short stories and poems. I spend a lot of time in the garden, my bedroom has a little porch and I have filled it with flowers.

On my weekends I spend time in my garden and with my kids and I spend time with the young people who I mentor.

Interesting Fact About Me
