I was born with cerebral palsy, which means my limbs are quite stiff and it decreases my mobility.
But I’ve never let anything hold me back in life. I went to university and am now pursuing a career in music.
I want to encourage other young people with disabilities to have the same self-belief and ambitions.
It doesn’t matter what you look like on the outside, what’s important is what’s on the inside.
If you have a passion for something, you shouldn’t let anything stop you from achieving your goals.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
The Persula Foundation My Fixers project has the backing of The Persula Foundation. It supports charitable organisations and develops original charitable projects.
Professor Penny Standen, University of Nottingham
Penny Standen, Professor of Health Psychology and Learning Disabilities, supports my project. She agreed to be interviewed for my broadcast piece.
Tina Carter from the college supports my Fix. She helped put me in touch with some students, who agreed to participate in a workshop to be filmed for my TV broadcast.
Me and my friends want young people to know that calories aren't the enemy!
