Cerebral Palsy (CP)

Faith Martin

I believe that having a disability is one of my greatest strengths

Hello I'm Faith. I'm 14 years old and I have Cerebral Palsy. I was around 3-4 months premature and my Cerebral Palsy is spastic diplegia. This means that I use a wheelchair as I'm unable to walk. I believe that having a disability is one of my greatest strengths, as it has allowed me to be able to create diverse and innovative ways of challenging society. For example, I study GCSE drama which means that I can show my fellow peers that disabled actors are a great asset to theatre and television as well. I also now have a blog called Rolling Through Life all about my experiences. My life motto: Believe you can, and you’re only halfway there.
