“A different perspective - one young man's journey”
Thursday 13 June 2019, 2.30pm to 3.30pm - at Angus Carers Centre
Liam McKelvie lost all four limbs, when aged two, to meningococcal septicaemia. Throughout his childhood he lived free of care, seeing himself as just another boy. There was no task or sport that he would not attempt and, through trial and error, he found his way in life.
As a teenager Liam started to notice his differences, and started to struggle with anxiety and depression. Now, as an up-and-coming motivational speaker, Liam is learning to overcome his differences and is looking to inspire others to break free of their own barriers, whether they be mental or physical. He truly believes that having a disability does not make you disabled, but instead differently-abled.
In his talk at Angus Carers Centre, Liam will be discussing his troubles and the ways that he has managed to overcome them, along with talking about societal attitudes towards disability.
If you would like to attend Liam’s talk at Angus Carers Centre on Thursday 13 June, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 10am on Thursday 13 June.
