For the past two years, I’ve had the pleasure of being a Naidex Ambassador. Naidex is Europe’s largest disability event and exhibition which takes place every year at Birmingham NEC. This was my first time at Naidex as I was unable to attend last year. So I was looking forward to finally making it this year.
Disabled Access Day 2019 took place this past weekend and I was excited to support the event by visiting Stirling Castle.

I’ve never been one to follow sports. Apart from a phase I went through during my younger years when I had a crush on Ryan Giggs and thought I was a huge Man United fan. Please don’t judge. But moving on from that I’ve never really been a supporter of any sport. I watched some matches on TV and went to a few matches of my hometown football team during my Ryan Giggs days.
