CHLOE

#31Faces #Face5

Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month 2020, March 5th

Chloe is 21-years-old and has mild Spastic Triaplegic Cerebral Palsy, which for Chloe means muscle tightness mainly in her legs and left arm, as well as problems with balance, coordination, movement and depth perception. 

Chloe has a degree in Psychology and she works full time from home. Chloe also loves writing and raising honest awareness about living with a disability.

Chloe says she hates it when people assume that her full time role is a voluntary position and also when people assume that she isn't in a relationship. 

In addition to having Cerebral Palsy, Chloe is also visually impaired - she says that people often assume that she has no vision at all because she uses a long cane.

Chloe says, "Judge me on my abilities and the things that I am capable of, rather than seeing me as less."

If Chloe could change one thing for young people with physical disabilities, it would be "for them to feel less alone. There are so many disabled people going through the same things. It's tough and you don't have to do it alone".

In the future, Chloe would like to continue her blogging work and get disability content into the mainstream media. She'd also love to write a book about her experiences with Cerebral Palsy and education, as well as becoming a freelance journalist.
