I’m strong, I fight for good. That’s why people call me the Hulk.

28 November 2017

Hello, my name is Giuseppe, but people call me “the Hulk”.

The Hulk is my favourite super hero because he is strong and he helps people.

But you don’t have to be a super hero to help people, you just have to do what you can – I use my strength.

I carry boxes, take out the rubbish, and always greet new people at the door.

I also always ask “would you like anything from the shop?”

At Meals on Wheels I give people food which is important to me because I love food. My favourite is pasta and more specifically ravioli, which may have something to do with my Italian heritage. I’ve been lucky to go to Sicily three times.

My mum never calls me by my name. She only calls me ‘the Gentleman’.

The Manager Carmen and my friend Subu are my favourite people at Endeavour Foundation.

I always ask Carmen if she want’s anything from the shop.

I also enjoy gardening at Cooper’s Plains and singing – my favourite song to sing is Slipping Away by Australian artist Max Merritt. I’ve got a great singing voice.
