Hi my name is Scott and I am 26 years old. I have Cerebral Palsy and as a result have been in a wheelchair for all of my life. I’m a massive sports fan, I love music, I also really enjoy giving back and helping others achieve goals.The personality traits which describe me well are: caring, giving, honest, thoughtful, happy, fun and determined.
I am able to relate very well to others with a disability because of my life experiences. Throughout my life I have had to face many up and down periods which has enabled me to gain a unique way of looking at the world.
The qualities which I would be able to bring to a mentor/mentee relationship are:
The ability to help you think outside the box.
To show you simple strategies on setting goals and achieving them.
Show you a simple technique that helps greatly improve your self-confidence, self-belief and get rid of self doubt.
Some other cool fun facts about me are that I currently own two businesses: one is a go-kart business which I co-own with my brother, the other is a business which allows me to help people improve their health and wellness.
