Mini introduction to me: Life as a Disabled Dance Graduate
Hi my name is Tobi Green-Adenowo, I am 25 and live with a condition called Osteogenesis Imperfecta type 3. I have broken 75 bones in my life, I am also a care leaver and have been in the care system since I was approximately 3 months old and have moved to 15 different foster homes.
I started dance at the age of 13 in my high school and was in lots of competitions whilst also training for the paralympics. I was told I wouldn't really amount to much and also not much was expected of me. Dispite this I left high school with 13 GCSE's all ranging from A* to a D, my passion for dance made me want to study it at this level and consequently I ended up being the first wheelchair dancer in the UK to change the curriculum of dance GCSE's so that disabled dance students could be marked fairly. I then went on the college and studied Performing Arts and recently graduated as a TV Broadcasting/ Dance graduate with an Upper Second Class. My dream now is to work towards having a TV Network for disabled actors, producers, singers, dancers and musicians. I know this will take time, which is why I am putting in the work and making those key connections with people in the TV and Media industry. I have been on the radio, modeled and will be in TV shows for different outlets soon, so please do keep an eye out for me. I am one of a kind and have a massive story to tell.
