Participant Spotlight: Peter

Meet Peter, long-time GiGi’s NYC participant! For those of you who already know Peter, you know how silly, fun-loving and humorous he is. You also know how much he LOVES to randomly say “chocolate cake!” to get a giggle out of everyone. Read below for more about Peter:

  • When did you join the GiGi’s NYC community? I joined GiGi’s Playhouse NYC about ten year ago.
  • How old are you? I’m 21.
  • What does GiGi’s NYC mean to you? GiGi’s NYC means a lot to me because I would have never met my special friends. I enjoy going there because I have made so many friends and I enjoy their company and time spent together.
  • How do you enjoy spending your free time? Whenever I have nothing to do and I’m home bored, I FaceTime my friends there and keep in touch. Even if we aren’t together, we always seem to stay in touch.
  • What would you like to see from GiGi’s NYC in the future? I would like to see GiGi’s NYC in the future in a bigger place where we can be more comfortable and have a kitchen area where we can also cook and learn to make different meals. I would really like that. 

Peter also recently celebrated his graduation. Congrats, Peter – GiGi’s NYC is so proud of you! We look forward to watching you continue to flourish!
