Forever a small fish in a big pond

Life Being Little Seminars

 

'Life Being Little' Seminars were created to enlighten opinions and enable conversations which better educate the wider community on Dwarfism, and disability as a whole; creating a safe space to ask and answer the questions most people are often afraid to say. Life Being Little Seminars started within my Youth Organisation- Urban Circle Newport on Dwarfism Awareness Day 2021 and have since gained the interest of businesses, professionals and institutions and now..... here we are. 


I was 14 when I did my first ever school assembly about my condition- I was standing in front of my secondary school peers and it was hands down the scariest thing I ever did. But from there I went on to do every house in my school- including some primary schools... 

Nearly a decade later and through the power of teams- I have 'virtually' travelled the UK presenting in a variety of manners. 

As well as having my own seminar package, which can be adapted based on each audience;  I am also always willing to take part in external events, and have attended seminars and sat within webinar panels as a guest speaker. 

Some highlights:

Last year I presented at the OU Seminar as part of my role as a Student Recruitment Officer at the University of South Wales; the presentation talked about my university experience and overcoming the hurdles of being the first in my family to attend- whist having a physical disability.


Most recently I attended Gwent Policy and Disability 'Strengthening relationships' seminar discussing my experiences of Hate Crime, and my relationships with wider communities.
