Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month 2020, March 17th
Abbie is 24-years-old and has Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy. For Abbie, this causes bad leg pains, fatigue and difficulty with coordination. Also, when she is really tired, it heightens her senses which can cause discomfort and bad headaches.
Abbie has started her own talent agency - The Dazey Hills Company. Abbie makes a lot of her own films as well as helping her actors and actresses to get parts in productions.
Abbie says she hates it when she doesn't know how to explain her disability to people as her Cerebral Palsy is mild. She often struggles to know when to bring it up, if at all.
Abbie's ambition is really important to her, she says "I would never forget it, even if I'm not feeling well".
In her free time, you will find Abbie writing and thinking of new ideas for films.
If Abbie could change one thing for young people with physical disabilities it would be to create more awareness of Cerebral Palsy. Abbie feels that there is not much support for young adults with Cerebral Palsy and that not many people know what Cerebral Palsy is.
Abbie says, "If you need a nap, take one! Or, try and do something creative everyday!"
