People who read my blogs and my tweets may get the impression that I am a hard nosed activist who is always too serious but I do indeed have a fun side. I am not just talking about my stardom in I’m Spazticus but also the fact I can as much fun as anyone else. I am never too proud to deny my inner child and I have chilling, going out to restaurants, shopping and of course water sports!
For me, disability is my work but it is not my life since while I am proud to have cerebral palsy, I do not define myself as being always disabled but merely the times I am facing direct discrimination or as a political term used in my work. When I am off duty, I am just Simon looking to enjoy life in any way I can.
I love laughing and I love making other people laugh, I think it is indeed a true sign of intelligence and a way to break down barriers. So when you meet me, prepare to chuckle as you get to see the whole of me and not just the political side you see in my blogs.
