My name is Demi and I’m 22 years old. I’m originally from Fife, Scotland, but I grew up in the North East of England since I was 4.
I have so many exciting hobbies. They keep me busy and play a vital role in my creativity, they are mostly through my iPad mini for accessibility and independence.
I was diagnosed with Riboflavin Transporter Deficiency (RTD) back in 2011, when I was 10 years old.
I am currently a student attending Newcastle College, doing an Art & Design level 2 course. I have a support worker provided by the college, who helps me set up the ‘arm’ that holds my iPad in place, so I can access my college work and tutorial PowerPoints.
