Thanks for visiting my blog. I’m Gem and I’m from West Yorkshire. I’m a wheelchair user that enjoys a lot of things in life. I love to analyse the experiences I have, then share them – probably with jokes in between. When I was younger, there weren’t many disabled people in the media so I want to make sure I add my sparkle to the tiny part of the internet on this page. Oh I also have a condition called Osteogenesis Imperfecta (type 3) aka Brittle Bones, because some people like the deets.
I now work as Content Manger for the mobile app, Sociability. Sociability helps disabled people find accessible places. I manage the full online presence of Sociability which honestly is a dream job! Do go ahead and follow us online if you’d like to learn more about accessibility and disability.
In the past I’ve worked in a number of areas since graduating University, including in Equality and Inclusion, Higher Education, Disability training and Communications. I’ve been a trustee of a charity as well as employing my own PA’s from the age of 18. I therefore now use my years of experience to create content, speak and consult around these areas – specifically around disability.
There are no rules on this blog. I love fashion, shoes, technology, make up, and of course talking about disability, equality and how we can all learn more (including myself). So if that sounds like your kind of thing, this blog may interest you. It’s basically like an online diary with some of my thoughts too.
If you’d like to work with me or ask me anything, contact me.
Thanks for visiting!
