When you meet Kris Upton for the first time, you will remember her infectious smile, and her cheerful nature.
Born with cerebral palsy, Kris has never let this affect what she wants to do in life.
Yes, there are days where Kris feels frustrated living with Cerebral Palsy, but she is an absolute inspiration to many including the team at ReadyTechGo.
Kris remembers watching Bruce Springsteen live in concert at Rod Laver Area, Melbourne. Now Kris can watch Bruce on YouTube in the comfort of her own home! Kris is one of many who are exploring the benefits of modern technology.
She has a can-do attitude, and is determined to master learning her computer, so she too, can “join everyone else going online!”
Why did you choose to have one-on-one technology lessons with ReadyTechGo?
Because I thought you would be more concentrated on the one person
What do you enjoy most about your one-on-one technology lessons with ReadyTechGo?
The team is so nice, and you take the time to explain things, and don’t get sick of my questions. You concentrate on me
How do you feel about your new technology skills?
Sometimes, because I have had a computer for a few years, I feel like I should be able to do more. The lessons have really helped, and now I feel much more confident
What is your favourite activity when it comes to technology?
Going on youtube, and watching Bruce Springsteen videos! I also like to use Google to look up stuff
What can you now do with your technology that you could not do before the lessons?
You (ReadyTechGo) helped me get wi-fi in the home, and now I am able to access the internet much more easily. Before wi-fi it was very slow, and I could not do the things I wanted
What would you say to other people who are struggling or not confident with their technology?
Keep working at it! People might think it takes years, and for me it did, which was frustrating. But I kept working at it!
