Lisa gives her time to others through volunteering whilst studying at Uni. despite having had 3 major surgeries in the last 4 years. I am currently studying at uni to become an educational psychologist in order to help others with disabilities in the future. I believe this is important because while overt discrimination has dramatically decreased there is still a need for people with disabilities to be present in the community as active citizens in order to decrease people's misconceptions. I am already striving to achieve this goal by being a mentor for other people with disabilities and their families in schools and social services. I hope to extend this to the NHS to improve staff's understanding of the implications of having a long term disability while recovering from surgery. My long term goal is to set up a holistic service where all services work together.
