Peter has been a guest speaker with The Big Issue Classroom since it expanded to Canberra in 2017. He has spoken to many schools across the ACT and NSW, and enjoys sharing his story with others.
“The younger generation may not be exposed to the situation that…a lot of vendors have gone through. They get an appreciation of where we are and where we’ve come from.”
The best part of the Classroom for Peter? “It’s the enjoyment of seeing the kids’ faces light up…they shake my hand and say ‘I really enjoyed your talk today'”.
Peter is also a vendor of The Big Issue magazine, and sells with his wife Genice in Queanbeyan, NSW.
