FOR Angelline Bradburg, being disabled has not deterred her from achieving her dreams of succeeding in life. Ms Bradburg was at the Fiji National Council for Disabled Persons (FNCDP) complex in Suva yesterday to commemorate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

The 29-year-old from Labasa said she was employed as a training teacher for the FNCDP.

“I started work in May in Labasa and I am grateful for this opportunity. I teach about more than 10 students in sewing,” Ms Bradburg said.

“We sew curtains, pillow cases, doormats, shopping bags and pot holders to name a few things.”

She said being disabled had motivated her to work hard and this testament was true as she was married with a child.

“I was born disabled, but I always strived hard to achieve my dreams. Sometimes it is difficult, but I have managed over the years to overcome this,” she said.

She said her main message to other people living with disabilities was to never give up no matter what and be positive in life.
