Abbie-Rose is an 18 year old student with a Visual Impairment, Auditory Processing Disorder and Hypermobility.

Abbie attended ENMAT 2014-2019 studying English, Photography, 3D Design, Media, Criminology and Health & Social Care. Abbie accessed various enabling technologies to ensure success in each area of study and her determination was evidenced from the outset.

Abbie enjoys meeting friends, rock climbing, Goalball, Roller Derby and continues to support Aniridia UK whilst campaigning for improved public transport for the visually impaired.
