At age 16, I had my leg amputated above the knee. Since then I have been fighting to change the perception of disability and create a strong image of disABLED people in the media. 2012 I trained with a circus school and performed in front of 80,000 people as well as becoming a successful personal trainer and model, I have also been featured on the front cover of Men’s Health magazine, I was the first amputee to walk on the New York Fashion Week Catwalk followed by Milan, Russia and London Fashion Week and more recently I was crowned Mr England 2017/19.
I will talk about the power of a role model; how important it is to have a inspirational figure in your life to give you hope.
