Support a young disabled person like Vanessa
My classmates used to call me names because of my hearing impairment. My teachers thought I didn’t want to listen. Leonard Cheshire supported me to get a hearing aid and enrolled me in a school where my teachers recognised my abilities. I feel confident now, and am looking forward to the future. I was recently awarded a scholarship for my secondary education.
I have a disability, but given the right opportunities, I can achieve the same goals as my peers and even surpass them.
