In his ’30 Stories’ interview, Chirag covers everything from his experiences at a mainstream primary school as being a wheelchair user, to his recent work placements at an IT company and law firm.
A quadriplegia cerebral palsy, with all of his four limbs affected by this condition, Chirag describes for us his day-to-day life with the help of his PA .He enjoys swimming and plays boccia, Chirag tells us he’s learnt the importance of teamwork through these sports and they have improved his confidence.
We interviewed Chirag during Covid19 lockdown and at that time, he was at home, feeling frustrated but learning new skills for future employment. The pandemic he says has “changed my perception of life because I don’t know what the future will hold and it’s really worrying me. But on the good side, I can operate from home.”
