Freelance Work

Hi! I'm Gem - this page is the spin off to my award winning blog After building the blog since 2016 and working in the disability and education sector, I decided to freelance and share my experience and knowledge with the world. I now offer both content creation on my social media pages or guest speaking and hosting at your events. If you have any questions - email me on

Content Creation

My award winning blog covers life as a young disabled woman with topics such as lifestyle, products that make life easier and general life updates. If you're interested in collaborating on either my blog or your website email for my fees.  


I guest speak at events covering all things disability and inclusion. Organisations I've worked with are SKY, ITV Studios, ITN and many more. I've even hosted a fashion show!

So if you're looking for a friendly Yorkshire lass to host your event,  email for my speaking fee.

Does your team need some extra knowledge around disability? I work with organisations to help increase confidence in communicating with disabled people. 

My main areas of focus are definitions, attitudes and communication. I lead my sessions with honesty and vulnerability whilst ensuring a safe and open space for the group.
