I am a disabled young adult, aged 20 living in Margam with my family when I’m back from college. I have Cerebral Palsy which affects my mobility and causes me to fully rely on the use of a wheelchair. I have some learning difficulties and limited concentration and my speech is slightly impaired but I will repeat myself until I am understood. I am able to drive my motorised wheelchair in safe environments but tire easily and rely on someone to take over the controls. I need help with eating and drinking but I can feed myself with food that can be picked up providing it is cut up. I am bright and enjoy fun, laughter and nonsense. I like spending time with people who are energetic, bubbly and make me laugh. I enjoy spending time on my IPad, watching TV, phoning and skyping friends and family. However, I need to be distracted from this as I can spend too much time using my gadgets instead of getting out and about.
