I am registered as blind, and I was born with a complex visual impairment called Ocular Albinism which means my vision constantly changes.
However, it wasn’t until 2017 that I picked up a white cane and started truly embracing my disabled identity. Using social media I have built a following as a prominent disability influencer. I share my lived experience navigating the world as a blind Londoner alongside my Guide Dog Ava.
My activism work includes #JustAskDontGrab a viral campaign which encourages people to ask for consent before offering assistance. I am also currently the Landlady of The Staying Inn, an online inclusive community for disabled people.
I am committed to celebrating disability, mobility aids and encouraging others to learn about the social model of disability.
