About me

I’m a Paralympic swimming champion and campaigner who has competed competitively at a global level for over a decade; since people with a learning disability were first allowed to participate!

Myth to Bust: People who have a learning disability all look the same; just because I may not look like I have a disability, it doesn’t mean it’s not there!
