Project Description

SIMEON WAKELY

Age 20, Taunton

I have spina bifida, hydrocephalus and scoliosis, and was born with part of my spine missing. I am paralysed from the waist down and use a wheelchair to get around. I campaign with Fixers to get more disability sports shown on television. As someone who has been playing wheelchair basketball for the last eight years, I know that being in a team, being around people who understand what you are going through, is very important. I am campaigning so that more people realise that despite having a disability, we can still do stuff that we want to do.
