Online Cooking, Workouts, And Many More Sessions Are Been Conducted by Stellar Experiences

25 years-old Zac Moore considers himself a video gamer and movie buff and when he has some spare time he likes to toying around with computers.

Moore suffers from cerebral palsy, a physical disability that affects his movement, epilepsy and Asperger's syndrome. He is also a patient of ocular albinism which is a genetic condition that has rendered him legally blind.

He is also the part of an organization named Stellar Experiences'  that offers young people with mild to moderate disabilities a community so that they can have a support system while social outings and travel from music festivals to overseas trips.

Speaking to 10daily Moore said, after being a part of them he had done so many things that he would never imagine doing them in his entire life.

Back in 2019, Bronte Hendricks and Luke Muttdon who are disability support workers started Stellar Experiences in Sydney.

At work, the duo had reached out to young adults with a range of disabilities so that later they can get a suitable job for themselves. But the 23-years-old Hendricks also pointed out the lack of opportunities offered to this group of young people in their everyday lives.

Speaking to 10Daily she said, "We noticed these were teenagers who were more than capable of being out in the community, who had the same interests and passions as everyone else but were so socially isolated. We were searching for something for them. That's where Stellar was born."

Social outings such as overseas travel, day trips, weekends away, and even nights out have provided support by Stellar. In a year, the group has gained three supporting workers, 60 guests, and a team of volunteers.

They expected to look like a big bunch of mates having fun, not like going out as a disability group, she added. But in recent months, this all happiness had vanished when the Stellar organization was hit by COVID-19.

But the co-founders were not ready to stop, and they were looking forward to the various ways that can keep them connected with their community.

Now, there are online trivia sessions, dress-up parties, cooking, workouts classes which are accompanied by trainers and the programs 'Stellar Sisters' and 'Stellar Brothers' that are also run by the organization.

With the help of the nutrition and exercise sessions, he can easily keep himself active and also be connected socially during this tough time, said Moore who is a part of 'Stellar Brothers'.
