“Hi! my name is Lily Park and I am a part of an amazing organization called Teaching Awareness through Puppetry, otherwise known as TAP. I am so excited to tell you about something that I have been working on with my friends at Epilepsy Toronto!! It’s called Live with Lily!

Each month we will have a brand new episode of Live with Lily where we’ll do something fun and learn something new together. I’ll invite my friends to join me and we’ll play games, read stories, answer questions, do activities together and more! Also, because I am a person living with epilepsy, we will definitely be talking about that too.

This month, join Lily in looking toward the future by learning how to set new goals and address any worries.
