LIKE many older people I have a mobility problem. I can walk, but only slowly and for limited distances.

That means I miss out on many adventures when I am travelling and I’m limited to visiting places that are easily accessible by hire car

To celebrate International Day of People with Disability, IDEAS has founded the IDEAS Power Blog. We want you to tell us about ‘your power’.       

MEDIA RELEASE

 These are the values that IDEAS intend to champion by giving a voice to silent heroes within

our community. Their latest social impact project is the Power Blog, scheduled to launch

December 3rd to mark International Day of People with a Disability.

Having just turned twenty two, I recently reflected on the significant milestones in my life. Over the last couple of years, I have been encouraged to blog by those around me. I’ve taken it upon myself to do so. I have Cerebral Palsy. It is a part of who I am - and always will be. However, there is so much more to a person with a disability than meets the eye.

 My 6 year old was asked to model for Target.

 

A great opportunity but the photo shoot was taking place back in the Macedon Ranges where we previously lived in complete terror with the violent thug.
