My name is Alex, I am 23 years old and based in Derbyshire.

If you follow me on any form of social media, you will have seen ‘neck breather’ in my bio and it is there for a reason. That reason is not just to confuse people, which trust me it has, I’ve received several messages asking me what it means. In a way, this was my goal, the more people who know what it means the better. 


What does it mean I hear you ask? When I was born my airway collapsed, as a result I am unable to breathe properly, so I have a tracheostomy, which is a tube in my neck that I breathe through. In addition, I have scoliosis and wear two hearing aids.


Last year I graduated from Derby Law School with a 2:1 Law Degree and I am currently studying the Legal Practice Course. I hope to one day practice as a solicitor in either employment or family law. 


Outside of law, my life is fairly normal. I am a big Derby County fan, myself and my Dad are season ticket holders and often go to away matches together. In addition, I am a big animal lover and would love to work with animals or in animal rights one day. I often spend my spare time finding new cruelty free beauty products to try, this might be something I also talk about in my blog posts.

So, that’s a little bit about me, thank you for visiting my blog. This is something I have been wanting to do for a while now, but I’ve just never had the confidence to do so. Over the past few years I have met some amazing people online who have similar disabilities to myself and reading their stories has helped me, so if I can help just one person realise even us disabled folk can nail life then it will be worth it.
