I’m discriminated – So what?



As someone with cerebral palsy from birth, I have been discriminated in countless ways through my life. Because I have a speech impairment, which is still quite a taboo, I am constantly having my intelligent undermined but I never let any of this stop me. I always believed in order to have a good life, things are going to be difficult and working hard is just a part of the course. If there is a barrier in the way of something I want, I remove it anyway I can, it is that simple and I have now learnt to do it with the same expertise, skill and elegance of Hannibal, metaphorically of course.


Disability is hard and I really confused to where people have got the idea it is anything else, it is by definition about struggling and I very odd for people to demand the royal treatment just because they believe they are disabled.
