About Me

I am an occupational therapy student, an ambassador for CP Teens UK, and Digital Production Director & Global Students ambassador for Occupational Therapist Without Borders. I am very determined to never let my disability get in the way of living my life my way. I face any challenges that life throws at me. I chose to train to be an occupational therapist, because when I was younger, my occupational therapists were phenomenal, they played a highly significant role in my life, and they inspired me to apply for this career. If I can make half the impact on an individual that they’ve made on me, and my family, then I know it is all worthwhile.
