About me

I’m a passionate, positive activist who wants to show the world that people with a learning disability can raise their voice and make a difference, whether we're singing Whitney Houston at the pub, standing up against bullies or protesting outside parliament.

My dream is to achieve equality for people with a learning disability and start my own charity in Zimbabwe, where I was born.  

Myth to bust: You can't communicate with a person with a learning disability; not true, I have a lot to say about a lot of things!
