Born with a congenital absence of both legs, George has learnt to walk with the use of two prosthetic legs. As a consequence, he says, quite honestly he cannot judge what difference this has made to his life, as he has never really known anything different!
“I found that FSDP really has helped me to begin to come to terms with my disability. I have begun to see it as a much smaller part of who I am and that it isn’t such a big deal to others. This improved level of confidence has led me to become far more active. I now go walking and swimming which has led to a huge improvement to my physical self. A healthy body goes hand in hand with a healthy mind which the flying scholarship has certainly helped to set in motion”
