Having managed to achieve lots of different things meaning that she has been able to improve her own and others lives, according to her own saying.

She had started an online petition and campaign for disability awareness to be taught in schools across the UK which then led to him becoming a student rep in her school to help improve other disabled people have a better school life and make a difference.

She would like to become a disabled activist and make “Our Life with Cerebral Palsy” a recognizable organization to help disabled people. All this whilst she discovered that its time to change a few little unhealthy habits into positive happier ones.

She does not want people to feel sorry for her because that is the worst thing they could do.
She too is confronted wit many people who shy away from the subject which means that for the younger generation now its going to be even harder to reduce the stigma of disability.
