"I describe being a Square Peg, forced to live in the Round Hole of societies expectations as a teenager, as my personality & my self esteem being chipped away at until I felt like an empty shell" (Charlie Reilly, 2015) It is this feeling of isolation & worthlessness that I hope to abolish through our projects at Square Pegs. We want to celebrate our quirky side, our uniqueness & our individuality & we want to be able to encourage others who may have similar feelings to find the tools which can help them do the same.
I have had many Jobs, a Career, ran several Projects, had an education full of holes & disjointedness, which went on throughout adulthood, I knew my 'WHY', I had my goals, and yet I could not find something which fitted in my unique abilities & that I could access with my 'dis'abilities, I attended The University of Portsmouth as a mature student realizing at this stage that anything was possible, and so I decided to form a little business for myself! This way my work fitted me perfectly, The Reilly Enterprise an award winning social enterprise company was born, Square Pegs Round Holes was a community project within our organisation.
In March 2016, Square Pegs Charity was formed from these same aspirations. I am incredibly proud to have founded a charity which supports the differences in people & encourages them to be the best they can visualize, I hope my children & grandchildren are around to help support our charity become a house hold name for many years to come.
