Being positive about my deafness inspires the deaf children I meet

I take an eight tonne lorry around the UK, teaching young people and their families about deaf awareness.

My day starts at 7am when my travel alarm clock starts vibrating under my pillow. As I am profoundly deaf, I rely on the vibrations to ensure I get out of bed, check emails and plan for the day ahead. After breakfast I am ready to hit the road and travel to the school we are scheduled to visit.
