"Some of us may be constructed abnormally, and may not come across formally or ordinary, but we have the potential to be extraordinary"
I have produced two videos. In this, I deliver 2 separate poems providing multiple viewpoints of the subject matter. I believe it is to stimulate consideration without becoming propaganda.

"See some of our talent doesn’t lay on the surface, but it doesn’t mean we're worthless, nobody's perfect, I promise you the difficult learner is worth it, and I know sometimes we may not deserve it, but like I said nobody’s perfect, I knew one day I'd be worth it, I would deserve it...."
SPOKEN WORD PERFORMANCES
I am in the beginning stages of setting up a series of performances in a theatre setting, where I can perform a series of poems, to all different genres of people to raise awareness on learning difficulties and the feelings that come with them. This is important, especially getting the engagement of the youth, so the possibility of other artists being involved is also an interesting concept.
I have already produced an exhibition to raise awareness on learning difficulties and social exclusion. For the exhibition I had a student from a Pupil Referral Unit with ADHD take part with his art. I also had the whole Unit take part in the set up and advertising, they also supported the event by coming along and bringing friends and family. This was an exceptional experience.
I have added a link below where you can read the report I wrote on the last exhibition (The Unwritten Diary). I will be organizing a future exhibition with the same aims and objectives.
