I'm a disability and face equality campaigner, writer and public speaker. I've also dabbled in acting and won the Creative Diversity Network award for Best Onscreen Performance in 2010 for my role in Channel 4's drama series Cast Offs.
I wrote an article for The Guardian newspaper in October about disfigurement-related disability hate crime. You can read it here. I will be donating my fee to this article to the amazing charity Changing Faces who do so much to support people with facial disfigurements.
