I have one blood brother and numerous half and step brothers and sisters, which I have had very little contact with for many years.
I have succeeded throughout my life because with determination and passion, I took advantage of every opportunity given to me, often the same opportunities given to anyone else particularly my non-disabled peers.
My family did not really play a big part in how I am succeeded because I feel they were unwilling to accept me as I am, as opposed to how they wished me to be, and therefore there were toxic to my goals and objectives, which means I no longer have contact with them if I wanted to succeed in life.
I feel I have not had any less privileged or more privileged background than any of my non-disabled peers, I just took the opportunities available to me and did not conform to what others expected of me.
I have always been determined and it is difficult to pinpoint where that fire in my belly comes from.
