As a young person with disabilities I am delighted to become a youth Ambassador for Include Me TOO as the charity supports and increase the voice for the voiceless young person and children with disabilities. By joining the efforts of Include Me TOO we reach out to more youth and children with disabilities to get involved on things that matter to them, sharing experiences and solutions. Personally I am able to share my lived experience to empower other young people with disabilities especially young girls who are facing multiple discrimination. My Aspiration is seeing a world where people with disabilities have equal access to all social services and respected and support the vision of Include Me TOO for inclusive safe society.
