MY LIFE - Changing the Face of Beauty for CBBC
A fantastic, inspiring series for young people who lead challenging and special lives. This film follows three young people with disabilities who are determined to change our perception of beauty.
I filmed with Rafi in Sheffield:
Rafi was 12 when he suddenly collapsed with a brain haemorrhage. He was rushed into intensive care and unable to speak or move for months. He is now 17 and not only has he relearnt how to walk and talk again - he has also embarked on a career in modelling. In a moving sequence we see him take to the catwalk at a charity fashion show, five years to the day since his brain haemorrhage.
