To mark our 30th anniversary, we’re releasing 30 stories from wheelchair users across our history. This ambitious and historic project will result in stories being archived as part of the The British Library Sound Archives ensuring that the life experiences of wheelchair users today are captured forever.

Having just graduated from a Masters in Law, she talks about her earliest memory, hearing a Whitney Houston track, to the reason she chose law as her specialist field.

She covers the issues wheelchair users are all to familiar with: independence, accessibility and negotiating university life, and yes, those un-dropped kerbs.
