"I’m a hip hop rapper and I have retinitis pigmentosa (RP). I'm also a presenter for Koast radio 106.6 FM in Northumberland.

"I’ve worked there for four months and really enjoy it. I’ve previously been in the local newspaper as an inspiration to adults, as well as others living with retinitis pigmentosa because I don’t and won’t give up. No matter your dream, you can achieve it. Even if you fail at first, you will succeed if you keep trying and never give up. I want to share my music to help people into the light and keep everyone feeling positive. I truly believe that positivity and persistence are the key to success. I may be blind, but I will never quit and it will never stop me from achieving my goals."
