1. What is your profession and why did youdecide to choose this field?  

I'm a freelance journalist and content creator. I love writing and being creative and this is a perfect way to be able to do that. Whilst connecting with others.

2. What is the most rewarding thing about whatyou do?

The community, it gives me, I receive so many messages of kindness, gratitude, and support from my followers. I've built up a wonderful community of people from all over the world. Not many passions allow you to do that.

3. What is your advice to all the other VIPsaround the world who don't believe they can be successful in the area oftheir interest because of their disability?

Life is all about taking opportunities, wherever you can find them. Believe it or not, your disability can actually open doors for you as opposed to closing them. People now more than ever are keen to listen to what disabled people have to say. Disability is such a wide spectrum and it's a unique lived experience. So, use that to your advantage, because your disability doesn't have to limit your opportunities. It can also give you them, you just have to put yourself out there.
