Whizz-Kidz is working to transform the lives of young wheelchair users in the UK. Our blogs feature the personal stories and opinions of some of the brilliant people helping us to do this – our supporters, healthcare professionals, staff and (most importantly) the young people we work with.
Michael Oyawale is a University student currently studying Finance. Whizz-Kidz have helped him secure several work placements over the last few months. Here he details his experience as a wheelchair user, seeking work experience in his chosen industry.
It's that time of year when thousands of students are set to fly the nest for the first time, whereas others are returning to University to complete their degree.
