Om Monday 5th March I was delighted to speak at the opening day of The Diversity Festival at Chester University.
The session entitled "Walk in my shoes" where 5 of us explained how our medical condition / disability affected us, our limitations and how those around us can help make our lives easier on a day to day basis. We talked about having a hearing impairment, being deaf, surviving cancer and physical disabilities. Some of us have had our disability since birth whilst others had developed it later in life.
We demonstrated that despite our disabilities / medical conditions that with the right support, whether that be equipment or help from others, that there are no limits and you can achieve in all aspects of your life.
The audience from Chester University were inspired and appreciated the insight into our conditions and ideas for ways in which they could help others similarly affected.
Making life better for all.
Delighted to be part of the Diversity Festival.
