    Disabled Girl Trying To Change The World

    Hey all

    I hope you're all doing well, keeping safe, had a good xmas, I could go on but I won't...

    My name is Emily Nicole Roberts, I'm a disability advocate from Swansea and a part time Youtuber (AKA I make Youtube Videos as a hobby when I'm not working)

    I just wanted to contact you to see if my videos could maybe help anyone you help too?

    I'm a shortlisted nominee for the National Diversity Awards with ITV currently, along with being featured on Radio 1 in November.

    With my Youtube videos, I endeavour to change lives by filming mine, I have worked with the BBC too as I often uncover what it's like being a disabled girl in the 21st century.

    Point is, I want to make people smile, laugh and realise their worth regardless of the different abilities we may have.

    I truly believe that the disabled youth aren't represented well enough in the media, hence why, I'm endeavouring to change that.

    I will shamelessly link my Youtube below, but thank you for reading this email regardless, and thank you for the work you do!!

    Lots of love,

    Emily Nicole Roberts

    As soon as I see the word Diversity I am put off straight away, that word means far too much nowadays for me.

    In this context it literally just means giving a platform to people who aren't straight, abled, white men.

    How is that a bad thing?

    OP. Good luck. I hope you win.

    Hi Emily,

    I just watched the first few of your videos and I think it's very brave of you to do what you're doing. The very best of luck with it all and I hope it takes you where you want to go.

    With such a lovely face and cheerful personality I think you'll go far - who knows you could end up becoming a TV personality in the future.

    I can only use my manual wheelchair around the house and have to rely on a powered one for outdoors. I love your roof box - I'd not seen one of those before. I just drive my wheelchair into the back of my car and then slide across to the driver's seat.

    All the best,

    Trevor
