Impaired by Birth, Disabled by Perception | Alan Carrigan | TEDxTralee
My name is Alan Carrigan I am 21 Years old and a wheelchair user from Ireland living with Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy. I run two Youtube Channels called 'The Disabled Gamer' & 'Alans Accessible Adventure'. Growing up in a mainstream school and being the only kid in a wheelchair motivated me to express my experience living with a disability across online platforms. This has led to a number of projects such as Podcasting, YouTube, Public Speaking and Disability Consultancy. I am looking to educate and challenge the way people perceive disability.
