Li is determined, motivated and has worked to build a better life for himself. With this comes empathy for others and an understanding of people and hurdles they may face. He should be proud of his achievements so far and I am sure there are many more to come

Following on Thursday’s event, I would like to take the time to thank you for your excellent contribution to our conference and all your help in making the meeting so engaging.

I thought your presentation was very powerful and you were extremely brave to share your life to date. You made a real impact with the audience and commanded a great deal of respect and admiration for all you have endured and how you have turned your life around. You should be very proud.

The event raised some extremely interesting and important issues, and I am sure the delegate audience will have taken some valued knowledge and inspiration from the plenary addresses.

We had very positive feedback after the event which we are delighted to receive.

Again, many thanks for all your help and I hope sincerely that we are fortunate enough to have you speaking at future events.

Had the privilege today of hearing @li_harris’s story of his experiences of growing up in care and children’s mental health services. Was heartbreaking and utterly inspiring in equal measure, and is a story everybody should hear and learn from. Check out https://lookedafterchild.com

Li has some of the best experience when working with vulnerable children as he was also one himself. Dedicated to the role he will learn as much as he can and then more just to make sure he can do everything he possibly can for them.

I hope you are well and got home safely back to Rochester after the conference.

Just wanted to send you an e mail to thank you once again for delivering such a powerful presentation. It cannot be easy, on any level, to share such details but I know the delegates were extremely appreciative and in awe of your bravery and ultimately the positive outcome.
