About me

I'm a passionate activist, campaigner and wife to my husband James. I made history in 2021 by being the first person with Down Syndrome to spearhead a national campaign to try and change the current laws surrounding people like us.

Myth to bust: People with a learning disability can't get married; James and I are very happily married!
