Me and my sister on BBC Morning Live

Today my sister and me were on BBC1 Morning Live (18:30 minutes in). To celebrate Siblings Day we talked about growing up together and how we support each other. We met Sophie and her sister Emily and talked about their relationship. We had a great day hanging out and shopping together.

I interviewed Sophie and Emily about their play and about what it is like being sisters. I also interviewed Jackie O’Sullivan from the charity Mencap. We talked about the work Mencap does and how they support siblings and families. I have worked with Mencap for a long time and am one of their celebrity ambassadors.

Sophie and I are Mencap mythbusters. We want to show that people with learning disabilities can do all sorts of things and have lots of different adventures. We all have something special. We are all individuals.
