Hi my name is Joseph Zerafa
I'm 18 years old and I live in south east London England I have a disorder called duchenne muscular dystrophy this slowly over time weaken the muscles in my body including my heart.
Growing up as a disabled child me my and my family had a lots of support. When I turned 18 our live changed dramatically.
I did well with my grades at school and gained a range of qualifications in media and It.
I then found a great college that supported young disabled people was expected and enrolled I was so excited about strating my new college. I applied for transport from my local authorities which I had been receiving thoughout school.
I was refused transport, told that my education was no longer composerie and told to go to my local college that didn't have the course I wanted to study. I then found out that other young disabled people in my area where finding it hard to get support.
I'm now stating my own clothing brand starting with T-shirts. As well as supporting my self I intend support organisations such as pathfinder who help young disabled people into education and employment.
If you can help pledge to invite you to my launch and give you update on how I'm doing :-)
