Dolores is a MRI Day Training participant. This means she spends her weekdays at MRI learning new skills and participating in classes like Sign Language, Literature and, her favorite, Music. Rachel interviewed Dolores a few weeks ago and we got to know a little more about her.
When Dolores is not here at MRI she enjoys spending time on the computer and collecting baby dolls and ink pins. Dolores also loves listening to music in her free time, with Bruno Mars being her favorite singer. She also loves movies and television! Her favorite movie to watch is Look Who is Talking Now and her favorite TV show is Leave it to Beaver! Dolores is also a big fan of Chinese cuisine. Yum!! One of Dolores’s favorite games to play is the card game Uno. She is competitive when playing and always strives to win!
Dolores is also a lover of animals, with dogs being her favorite! If she had a dog she would name it George.
When asked about what she likes about her case manager at MRI, Dolores said, “I think that my case manager is nice to me and she makes me happy.” She also had to say about her group leader, “She makes me happy and she is funny too!”
What Dolores truly enjoys about MRI is that they give her an opportunity to make money. Through Community Employment Services (CES) and employment opportunities at Macon Resources, individuals have the option to earn a wage executing various tasks.

Overall, Dolores sees herself as a nice and funny individual and we all think so too!
