The Human Aspect of Pete Christoffer

During my university studies, I felt pressured by all life’s aspects and my world came tumbling down. Growing up I was diagnosed with Aspbergers and often put in a “special class”, which slowly left me with the feeling that I wasn’t meant to succeed. Anxiety slowly developed and I struggled to see the positive elements in life. See how I found solace and support in the social aspects and activities of student life. This gave me the support I needed to finish my studies and prove to myself that I could succeed. Learn how I found a safe space to develop my self-worth in a community space called “Clubhouse”. The warmth and space they gave me to contribute in my own time, helped me explore who I wanted to be. This is my story.
