I am the Matron of care home for physically disabled people and wish to nominate one of our resident's, Hannah. Hannah is twenty years old and lives with Cerebral Palsy, she is selfless, articulate and inspiring and as independent as possible within her specially adapted electric wheelchair. Hannah attacks her disability in a positive and proactive way and glories in what she has and can achieve - refusing to dwell on upon anything that physically she is unable to do. She works in a Primary School having gained an NVQ 2 she now wants to enroll on a diploma, she is popular and dedicated to her role and is a genuine motivator. Hannah is unable to weight bear and has limiting hand movement but has still managed to excel at her job and win over the hearts of the children she teaches, her natural warmth and empathy has been more than enough to over come her physical disability. Hannah loves all sports and has been looking forward to the Games coming to England, practicalities would make it impossible for our residents to go to London, but, if Hannah was chosen as a torch bearer,(she has already devised a plan to carry it safely!) it would be a fantastic honor and experience for her as an individual which would be transferred to all her friends at the home -who would be delighted to share in her journey. I believe that Hannah would approach the role of torch bearer in a considered and professional way- she would be an excellent role model and an inspiration for others.
