Born with spina bifida, and despite an operation when only a few weeks old, Adam still has spinal problems. He attained a degree in Criminology and Applied Psychology and although he applied to join the RAF, he realised it was not a realistic possibility.
An accident at work four years ago further damaged his back, and resulted in long periods off work. He was unable to pursue his interests, leaving him isolated and depressed. He now works as a support worker with the Sussex Association for Spina Bifida and Hydracephalitis, helping others with his condition. The scholarship has made him feel more positive about his future, and has helped him become the person he knew he was meant to be.
