Mind over Matter is a new feature, focusing on resilient community members, known as “a shining light in our community” and includes a brief interview; photo and a personalized appreciation gift for the recipient.
It is a new collaboration between the Fox Creek Community Resource Centre, The CHAMP (Community Helpers and Mentoring Programs) Team and Fox in Focus.
The fourth recipient was Barb Jantz.
She was interviewed by Jennifer Becker, Director of Community Services, Sandra Hardy, CHAMP Coordinator and Brandi Camilleri, journalist from Fox in Focus on July 8th.
Barb was asked three questions; 1) How does she stays positive in difficult situations? 2) How does she encourage others to face life’s challenges? and 3) What does she do for self-care?
