Don’t Point & Stare
I wrote a talk which I gave with the help of my little brother Koby to my whole school of 200+ children and teachers. The talk was to tell everyone not to point and stare but instead to come and ask, start a conversation and find out
I gave my first talk to my school talking about prosthetics when I was 9. I wanted to get the message out that you shouldn’t look and stare at people who are different.
You can see the talk here . (waiting on School approval to show video)
The talk went down really well and I had a lot of questions from other children which was great.
What I realised is that there are a lot of young people like me, facing the same challenges, problems, worries and joys. I want to be able to offer advice, to reassure them and point them in the direction of the people who’ve helped me. Because if you’re 11 and you have questions that only an 11 year old can answer and understand that’s better, isn’t it?
