I am kind. I am helpful. I want you to see that.

28 November 2017

Hi my name is James Bruce, but people call me Bruce Man.

When I see a photo of myself I see a funny character, ‘cause I’m hilarious – yes I am.

I like watching comedians and especially British comedy, ‘cause everybody laughs.

I make my Nanna Wendy laugh all the time, because that’s what she likes and it’s hilarious. I love to go on the boat with Nanna.

I do it because I like to be helpful. People see me as a funny man but it’s important that people know I am kind and helpful too. I use my humour to help people and I like to help people out, cause that’s what you do.

I’m excited about being on the big screen for this and I want everyone to know I’m funny and hilarious and because everybody knows about that.

I have different voices that I do, I do a Scottish accent and movie characters voices, and they make people laugh too, they come from the mouth.

Making people laugh is easy when you are always having a good time yourself.

I’m 26 years old and I’d like to get a job one day, maybe a bus driver.

I made a photo of the rainforest at Roma Street Parklands called “Like an Intergalactic Movie” which got nominated for the Lord Mayor’s Green Heart Photography Award. I enjoy the exploring and the editing part too. Endeavour Foundation helped me do it. They are also helping me to make a Journey Planner App for people with disabilities. It helps you with which buses to catch and when, ‘cause that’s just what you do.

Chris from Endeavour Foundation is helpful. Me and Chris are funny, man! Some times at Coopers Plains I wear the spectacles and play the virtual learning games. It’s pretty easy once you get the hang of it, yes it is.
