I am a disability communications and accessibility specialist, specialising in fashion and gaming. I love nurturing online disabled communities and creating meaningful content. I have experience with doing so at organisations like Open Style Lab and Adaptive Fashion UK. I also have a degree in Fashion Promotion and Communication. I am excited to bring this love and expertise to Sofa Central!
Heck yes! It took me a decade to have the love I do for my disabilities, but I do still struggle with it some days. We are not monoliths after all.
I have a range of energy limiting, mobility, cognitive, chronic pain and dexterity related illnesses and disabilities. I became ill at 10 years old, then properly housebound at 14. Been riding the wave of learning to thrive, not just survive, since! I’m in my mid twenties for reference.
I use mobility aids like walking sticks, crutches and my wheelchair.
To create a safe, accessible and caring environment for us all, me included. A place for us to feel belonging and understanding.
