Candidate Statement: I believe that people with disabilities should be represented. I was born visually impaired so know how it feels to have to work harder to equal my peers, and what it's like not to be given the right support. I also know what it's like to be treated differently for both my disability and being a member of the LGBTQ+ community, another group I am proud to represent.

I would be a good advocate for change and give a voice to others, including those in rural areas. I enjoy debates and giving presentations but I keep an open mind, listen to others, respect their beliefs and work well in a group. I was previously a member of the school council which I enjoyed. I have a passion for performing arts so I’m comfortable in front of crowds and can project my voice. I’m approachable and happy to educate people about my disability.

I recently did a session for a primary school about living with a visual impairment. Even the teachers learned a lot! I inspired a young person with a visual impairment to be more confident and not let his disability stop him trying new things and being independent.
