Name: Kat Pemberton
Age: 19
Year of the Fix: 2017
Location: Bradford, West Yorkshire
Campaign: To break down stereotypes surrounding people with disabilities

I was born with spinal muscular atrophy type 2, which means that over time my muscles gradually become weak. 

 

It’s definitely challenging to be just seen as a normal, everyday young girl. I don’t want to be 'the girl in the wheelchair', I just want to be me. 

 

I’ve created a film about some of the things that have happened to me way too often, and really shouldn’t. 

 

The main message of my Fixers film is to understand and accept people with disabilities.

 

I’d love for people just to see me, as myself, and get to know me, before they get to know my disability and my wheelchair. 

The following Fixers helped me with this Fix:
