Hashtag The Lips And How It Was Born

Updated: Mar 24, 2021

This is how it all began...

After leaving home at the age of 24, having rehabilitated myself after becoming a partially sighted human at the age of 23, I had no idea about the barriers I would have to face in the world alone just to survive as a new “caner” never mind anything else. I realised very quickly that everything was built for people who have perfect bodies which, we all know is not real.

Even council systems…

Everything I tried to do involved having to break down a door or several to get to the end goal. They say the devil is in the detail and the ironic thing is, when one can’t see, one sees all the detail in its full glory. Getting from A to B proved to be very challenging.
