Awan at WorkAt Perry Wellness Center, few peers are more involved with program activities than Awam Smith. Awam is always ready to help others out, no matter how challenging the tasks.

The dedicated peer explains, “I just like to help others to resolve their problems.”

Perry Wellness Center founder and director Stuart Perry has this to say: “Awan should be tired at the end of each day. He works hard to help others in their tasks.”

But even the most helpful person needs time for relaxation and self-care. One activity Awan enjoys is creative expression through the use of colored pencils and other artistic tools. For St. Patrick’s Day, pre-designed sheets were given out in the peer classroom. Completed drawings were then shared with others. In the photo above, Awam works to complete his sheet with bright colors.
