Cat’s video transcript

Cat: An experience where I felt that my disability was seen as a negative or a weakness: I applied for university to do physiotherapy and I was told when I was being assessed that they’d never had anyone like me. So they didn’t think I’d be able to do the course.

People saw that disability as a weakness and not a strength. And I see this disability as a strength, a tool, something that can give back.

Ask me if I’m confident and I’m comfortable. Don’t assume that I’m not.
