Nottinghamshire • UK
I have a disease in my hips, called Perthes disease. I have had endless hospital trips and X-rays, as well as three major operations. After the third one I spent 8 weeks in a wheelchair, unable to walk unable to dance. The year before my surgery I won a world title as a modern dancer. I have overcome pain and discomfort to be the dancer I am today. I am never going to be as good as everyone else but I train everyday to be the best I can be no matter what everyone else thinks.
