We have one girl (me) and three guys, but one only lives with us every second weekend, who you will be helping us care for.
I am an education students, a nanny, I work on the garden and look after our 3 rats, 5 chickens and 1 cat. I also really love the footy and am a huge Canberra Raiders fan, I also have an indoor soccer team. I share a room with my partner who is also an education student and works as an LSA. He really loves playing cricket which is most nights of the week.
Our other housemate is a chef. We all went to school together. We are kind of nerdy and love just having relaxed weekends playing playstation and computer games and have a pretty decent board game collection. We listen to music a lot and we love to have some drinks together in the evening. Lastly our part time housemate is a young funny guy who also happens to have an intellectual disability.
Some info about Isaac:
I'm Isaac and I am 19. I am a fun guy who loves cruising in the car with the music blaring and the window down, going to see live bands, hanging out with horses and supporting the Canberra Raiders. I also have an intellectual disability. I am slowly learning to live in my own home with my housemates. At the moment I am hanging out there every second weekend and I’m looking for someone to move into the house and support me when I come to stay.
