DYLAN

#31Faces #Face25

Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month 2020, March 25th

Dylan is 19-years-old and has Hemiplegia, which affects the left side of his body. His weaker foot makes it difficult for Dylan to balance and walk. As a result, Dylan wears a splint to help him.

Dylan loves performing and singing. He also loves to make people laugh. 

Dylan says, "I hate it when people mock your disability because they think you're not able to understand what they're doing and that your feelings can still get hurt".

Things that are really important to Dylan include getting into college, his family & friends and getting to perform on stage as much as possible.

If Dylan could change one thing for youngsters with physical disabilities it would be for them to be able to have the same number of opportunities and clubs available to them as everyone else.

In Dylan's free time he likes to play on his Nintendo Switch with his friends, go RaceRunning and attend his theatre club where he also likes to attend the discos with his friends.

In the future, Dylan aspires to be a famous performer on stage as well as a singer.

Dylan says, "Don't let negative people get you down and never give up!"
