Rūdolfs!

Rūdolfs!




Rūdolfs is one of the youths living at Cerību Māja (House of Hope) and who visits the Day Centre. All of his colleagues describe him as an elegant young man with good manners. He will always let a lady enter the room first and will always lend a helping hand. He will never be rude or unkind. He will always try to help his fellow members.
Rūdolfs spends most of his time in the candle workshop, helping to break apart slabs and add colouring to moulds. Currently a lot of white, green and blue candles are being made. Candles with winter holiday themed elements, like Christmas trees and their decorations, are also being made. Filling the Christmas tree mould is not easy, as the mould is narrow, but Rūdolfs has the patience to do it well. It is also a great exercise for finger dexterity and training one’s ability to concentrate on a single task. Upon assigning Rūdolfs a task, it has to be properly defined and demonstrated straight away so that he already knows what he will have to do.
Rūdolfs rarely speaks and uses as few words as possible. That is why one of his main methods of communication is writing. During our conversation, he wrote about all the things that bring joy to his life. There are so many things he enjoys and that make him happy. He is inspired by music, for example, by the band Prāta Vētra (Brainstorm), he loves computer games, the board game Tic-Tac-Toe, and the movie about María Eva Duarte de Perón, an Argentinian politician. He loves Coca-Cola, and his favourite foods are macaroni with cheese, pizza and meatballs. He has been to VEF basketball team games with his family. Rūdolfs has a tattoo of the ship Gondols on his shoulder. It was a very important trip for him. He enjoys swimming in the sea or the pool every chance he gets.
With fondness, Rūdolfs remembers his teacher Antra, who was almost like a mother to him. He is happy to talk about himself, and he smiles a lot. Rūdolfs hopes that everyone, including himself, plays a lot of games, reads comics and remains in good spirits during the holidays.
PS: He asked Santa Claus to bring him the Lego space rocket set for Christmas.
