One young woman, spoke out for the first time about the impact the leadership development has had on her outlook and attitude:

"Today's made me realise I've changed since the girl who couldn't stand up and talk, thankful for @ Dunstan_Lucy giving me these opportunities.

I now speak for myself more often and I rarely let anyone speak for me, as no one really knows what I want or need as much as I do! The sessions have supported me to speak up for myself more. There are still certain situations where I may feel uncomfortable, however, when talking about my disability I have lots of confidence and I feel comfortable talking about it."
