Machandria Peters is a Cerebral Palsy Warrior, and an advocate, recognising that there is a disconnect between able-bodied individuals and those who are differently-abled (disabled). She shares her story and experiences to help educate and advocate.

In this episode, this vibrant and inspiring woman talks about how growing up Machandria said she wasn’t coddled by her parents. She knew that there was something different about her, didn't feel like it was going to be a detriment. She was able to run and play and do things with her cousins and siblings and friends. Until she went to Secondary school when things changed. Those around her made assumptions about her and her abilities.

Machindria candidly shares her experiences and explains how Cerebral Palsy can affect each person differently. Machandria not only lives successfully with her condition, but she thrives, as well as sharing her story, educating others about the condition.
