Juwairia has been coming to Chapel FM Arts Centre for many years. She’s part of our the Next Generation group for 11-18 year-olds, and co-host of the Disabled Table.
Juwairia studies the Level 2 Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care at Leeds City College. She says:
“I was born fully blind and it’s always been like that. I guess people find this really weird when I say it, but some of the stuff I do right now I don’t think I’d actually be doing if it wasn’t for me being blind.”
