MADDY

#31Faces #Face3

Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month 2020, March 3rd

Maddy is 22-years-old and has Hemiplegia, which affects her right side as well as her balance, movement and coordination. Maddy also experiences some processing issues when in large groups. She is funny, kind, adventurous, happy and always up for a laugh!

She has recently graduated from University where she studied BA Hons Sport Development. She is also a Para Platform Diver and is the only diving coach in the UK with Cerebral Palsy!

Maddy also enjoys skiing alongside her diving. She has recently set up her own blog and hopes to go into motivational speaking.

Away from sport, you will find Maddy getting lost in a good book!

Maddy says that if she could change one thing for other young people with disabilities it would be more social and sport inclusion - she'd like to see it being easier for young people with disabilities to be included and to receive the same opportunities as able-bodied people.

Maddy says, "If someone says you can't do something, don't be put off - try and go for it!"
