Miguel Staples Guasch

Wednesday Guest Speaker

A lover of the arts, the first of Miguel's family to graduate from post-secondary and most importantly a burn survivor. Thanks to the burn community Miguel's self-confidence and socials skills had grown tremendously and helped shape him to be the young adult that he is today. He has learned how to stand up for himself and how to self-advocate and know what is best for him and due to this, Miguel has been able to learn more and grow each time due to this. His connection with the burn community is something that has also helped him with my confidence as he has seen others his age, and younger or older advocate for their rights and better treatment. It had greatly shaped Miguel and helped him with his confidence.
