Winter Programs Special Olympics Team Powderhorn Volunteers

Valentina Jensen

I came to America in 1999 from the Ukraine. I knew my husband liked to ski and little about his volunteer program, but since I have never skied in my life so I had no comprehension or appreciation of the sport until my first winter. With the help of my husband and some of the other instructors, I learned to ski and how to teach. I really like to work with developmentally disabled children because in my former country there is nothing like this program. The children are kept hidden away.
