Coming Together In The Workplace

Alt Image

I have worked at Special Olympics Virginia or what we call “SOVA” as an Office Assistant for 6 years.

My fellow staff members are the best employees to work with, and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of such a great team. Each day at SOVA I learn something new, and am always making life-long friends in the process. SOVA has helped teach me that no matter who you are, everyone can make a difference in the lives of people with intellectual disabilities.

When we are aware of their needs, we all become more compassionate, and dedicate ourselves every day to helping them feel included in society. It’s wonderful, and touching to help others connect to the kindness that SOVA brings into our hearts.

I hope by reading this, all of you will feel the same, and want to help spread the word of the wonderful things SOVA can do for you, as well.

About Me:

My name is Emily Bower, 31, and I feel so blessed to be working at Special Olympics Virginia. My co-workers are amazing people, and have inspired me in so many ways. When I'm not working I enjoy reading, writing poetry, spending time with friends, and swimming.
