Just Getting on with it

Just Getting on with it was inspired by the interview transcript of a conversation between a young carer and a young researcher at a Stories2Connect story-telling event. The story features a young man called Josh who doesn’t like to talk about his problems but instead prefers to, ‘just get on’. A chance encounter with a fellow student at his grandad’s farm helps Josh to realise that speaking frankly about the challenges he has faced in the past might also help him to imagine a much brighter future ahead. This story was written with a teen audience in mind and may also be of interest to education and social work professionals.
